I have come to the point where I realize Beatrix definitely ate her shrimp companions. They never resurfaced, and several attempts to locate bodies have been unsuccessful. So, now the point has come where I am thinking I would like to add some more in with her. I don't really want her to eat them, but at the same time I love the clean up they do (she is a messy eater). How many shrimp do you think I could add? I have 3 mystery snails and Beatrix in a 10 g. I am going to get some more hiding spots. They always seems to be hidden well in the plants, but I guess not, or maybe they just died of natural causes and she ate them.
Also, do you know if shrimp can carry the fungus that kills frogs? The ghost shrimp at PetSmart are in with the ADF. I wouldn't want to expose her to the fungus, but even a 3 mos QT wouldn't tell me anything since they don't die from it.
