the site silverfangs posted earlier is a great help

I am grateful for it

so to put shrimp in a betta tank is a gamble either way you put it

i love this thread <3

I wouldn't lay odds on their size saving them. There were only bits left after my mid sized plakat found the one on his side. And nothing left from the one on Champagnes side.

Edit: oh! And my crystals were kept in some insanely soft water and were just fine. Granted the would prefer mid 70s rather than 80.

no, I didn't have them long enough, and they were too young 1-1.5 cm in length.

And then I had an accident that killed all my shrimp, 100$ worth of shrimp all curled up and died over night. I was devastated.

Actually none of my shrimp bred until the fall, but I blame that on a freakish hot summer and even with the heater cranked down, it was still averaging above 80 degrees.

I believe my amanos' size is what kept Spike the Fierce from eating them. Spike ate several ghost shrimp already and attempted to eat a snail. These guys are as big as Spike's body.

Here's one of my 5 Amano shrimp I got for my 10 gallon yesterday, I can't seem to ever find the 5th though... Cinder was staring them down for a little bit, but never even flared. They're best friends already
