so I tried to introduce 3 cherry shrimps and an amano to my red double tail betta in a 5g and he immediately was like "WHAT IS IN HERE" to the bag, then when they were in the tank he chased them all around and were nipping at them. >_> I quickly rescued them and put them in my other 5g which has no other fish - its being prepped for another. Do you think its a lost cause to introduce other tank mates to a betta like that? (like a snail) I really wanted to put an algae in there because of the plant debris and green algae.
Would it work more smoothly if I say introduced shrimps first to a tank, and then the betta?
