ghost shrimp?

I have a heated 2.5 gallon tank, no filter, with one female betta. I've had her for a few months now and she's pretty energetic! Anyhow, I was wondering if one or two ghost shrimp would be good additions? Would they be ok without a filter, are they aggressive, and do they need special food? Thanks!

ghost shrimp

i wouldn't put ghost shrimp in with her because she WILL eat them.Some shrimp are too fast for bettas to catch,but i wouldn't risk it.Plus,it will foul up the water when they die.

I would sugest you purchace a nanofilter unit like the Azoo palm filter for your tank..they are under $10.. and fit on the back like a tiny power filter.

Are you sure that a female betta would eat a ghost shrimp? I've heard that this works..

i have 3 ghost shrimp in my 2.5 and my bettas punk them every now and then.
but no one has died... they are pretty quick and i just feed them tropical flakes with a turkey baster.
hope this helped.
