Ew!

Great post Aokashi!

Wanna see Amano poo?
They made this much poo in 5 hours in a 5.5 gallon tank. But bear in mind, I have an algae infestation.

Make sure they dont get a taste of fish food before the job is done >.> I do suggest feeding them blanched veggies in the future so the betta doesnt stuff himself on algae wafers or something XD

Spike did that when I had to temporarily keep my baby common pleco in with him. We keep plenty of veggies in the house for the guinea pigs and our salads. So there will be plenty of lettuce for them.

I'd like to know what people think about Rili shrimp. They're adorable, but I'm worried they'd be too small to be with a betta.

Since Rili Reds are a mutation of the Red Cherry, I would follow aokashi's guidelines to owning Red Cherry Shrimp:

One of the many variations of the NeoCaridina. The Neos consists of blue, white red and yellow variations and are one of the hardiest dwarf shrimps in the aquarium hobby. They can get quite pricy depending on where you are located, however, a good search in local aquarium clubs, or even on craigslist will get you some good deals on these guys.

I can only recommend full fledged females for the betta tank. These are the largest and have the highest chances of surviving a betta attack. I once made the terrible mistake of allowing a poor juvenile shrimplet slip from my net into the betta tank. needless to say, it barely had a second to enjoy its new found freedom in my NPT before it knew what hit it. And my betta, Kuro, certainly enjoyed a gourmet meal that night.
