I would like to house a couple of cherry shrimp with my betta (when he comes). I have a 4 gallon tank. I was wondering, will one betta and 2 cherry shrimp be ok in 4 gallons (waste load wise)?
I have a few places for the shrimp to hide, and was even thinking of getting one of those special "shrimp hides" the 3 stacked tube things. I was going to tie moss to the hide to make it look nicer too.
I am also picking up another live plant today, and have more Marimo balls on the way (I have one in there now). With the live plant, moss, and Marimo moss balls, will I need to feed the shrimp? Or will they just eat the moss/extra betta food/waste?
I know the Betta may eat the shrimp, and that is ok if they do...I am more concerned with if the waste load will be too high, and if I should also buy shrimp food in addition to everything else?
