I recently moved my two bettas into a divided tank and I thought it would be cool to add a few shrimp as 2 bettas + 10 gallons has a bit of potential. I am still debating whether or not to go ghost shrimp or some other creatures. Now to the juicy part of this post... quarantine. I have three options when it comes to stocking this tank: Petco, Petsmart, and an LFS called Tri-City Tropical fish. The first two chains have have shrimps for sure but I have seen occurrences of diseases in their tanks. The LFS would be my first option but I am not sure if they have ghosties or at least amanos. Can shrimps pick up diseases from fish or are invertebrates safe? Should I quarantine and if so for how long?
Tap:7.8 after 48 hours
Ammonia (tap): .25
Temp:75*F (Low until I get new heater, my old Hydor Theo 50w pooped out)
Also any suggestions for alternate compatible species whether invertebrate or not would be greatly appreciated.
