ok, so i received my micro anubias and petite gold anubias, along with a plant i paid $20 for :P.
my betta, i am now naming Garen, doesn't play nicely and ate about 4 shrimp so far. i have to section him off in the corner and gave him what is equivalent of 1.25 gallon swimming area i assume. he's doing well, swimming, exploring, and going crazy for food.

i posted this in betta photo's but i'll post it here also.
before

after


my fissidens moss is growing in pretty well, shrimp love it as well

i think this is pennywort? not sure the name but it's growing rather quickly and i hope it fills in nicely


i also got a small sample of this plant (which i believe is glosso), the seller of my anubias micro probably accidentally pulled a small portion of this out and i am now growing it in hopes it carpets my island; probably going to take a year at the least, haha!

It took me a few mins to realize you are using one of those reptile terrariums...

are you going to let the betta free once the plants grow in a bit and provide more shelter for the shrimps or is he going to stay in the corner?
I though of getting some shrimps but I think my girls would eat them all

after the plants grow in and i get more things i'll try letting him free again, older males are usually slower because of the large tails; i think. right now my betta is a speed demon and catches shrimp with ease.

I have heard VT and HM's can be slower because of their tails and I have also heard that shrimp fair better if there is alot of moss and carpet like plants so they can hide from the betta. I would like to try shrimp but I think they would become snacks plus the only ones I ever see here are the much bigger bamboo shrimp and one of them is like $12.
