Okay. That is good to know. I was leaning towards cherry shrimp because I love how they pop against the green of moss balls. But ghost shrimp are so much cheaper and easier to find in pet stores!

Up till now I've had some tiny bowls(like the ones at the carnival where you win a fish)
I used them for years when I cleaned my tanks,but they've been collecting dust for a long time now.
However I just got an idea,if I smooth a thin layer of silicone on them then roll them in gravel they could make a cool betta cave.

Thanks for making me think about it :)

No cherry shrimp in a bowl please! :3 They are bigger and more active, they need more.

Really? The ones I have always seen were so tiny, about a cm, and in about 2 gallons, the same size as my bowl. Mind you I saw these at a professional aquarium (for education, not sale), so I was under the impression that they were full grown. Hang on, let me find the picture...

Here. You can just barely see on to the right side on a moss ball.

Yeah, they are still small, but Ghost Shrimp can get only at complete maximum even kind of rare 1.5 inches. If it gets 2 inches you have a mutant Ghostie!

In 2 gallons though that would be okay with 5 Cherry, But they need great water quality. I prefer Ghost.

But i the 2 gallons you could also get 10 ghost shrimp. I have 5 in my 1 gallon bowl.


EDIT- WOAH! HUGE MOSS BALLS! Lol. Yeah, they aren't big, just biggER.

I tried growing plants in my bowl.It is just to hard to light and heat. They died. Besides, I like to have my little friends in there more.
