So I've got my Beta tank going now with a small community. It's a 10gal with live plants, my Beta, a school of Neon Tetras and a school of Rasboras.
I had added some ghost shrimp and everyone got along fine. Then I noticed I could not find my ghost shrimp anymore and found the dried up husk of one outside my tank. They are cheap enough that buying more is not the problem, there just aren't any to be had to buy! All my local and even non-local pet stores are out and have been having a very hard time getting any ghost shrimp in. It took almost 3 weeks of searching and phone calls to finally get some and even then the store only got 6.
So, I need a better solution. What other algae eaters would work well in my tank?
