The Petco college kid just told me that having quick growing plants in a shrimp tank will kill the shrimp. Is this true? Google can neither confirm nor deny. Is that why you've mostly got anubias in there weluvbettas?

No I have some fast growing plants and there fine. I think that petco person is just a bit dumb and does not know much. I have a lot of Anubias because I bought a big box :)

That is a pretty tank!!
But for 40 shrimp....4 gallons is a bit small.
Please correct me if I am wrong ( I know you said you know what you are doing!), but I have been studying about them and though not much, they need space too.
With 40 shrimp, even though they are small, they crawl on the bottom of the tank, so that sounds like theres not much space.
But they are healthy, and there home is healthy, so that's great!

What kind of Shrimp do you have?
:)

Oh, that's cool,
Okay!
Cherry Shrimp are cute. :)
I've only had ghost shrimp and unortunately for 3 days and then died. It wasn't my fault though, at least I don't think so because I took good care of them, I believe they might have already been unhealthy from the store.
I haven't gotten any since because I ended up with a cute Mystery Snail!
But I do miss the one's I had, they were cool and I had already named them.
Haha
