A Quick Question

Hello,
This is my first time on this website/forum and i had a quick question
i just got a betta fish about a month ago, a half moon double tail, i think he is only a halfmoon tho lol, but we are battling fin rot at the moment and things seem to look a lil better. i wanted to add ghost shrimp to the tank to help with the brown algae that is going on on the plants, is there a good time when to add the ghost shrimp or should i wait to add when the betta fish is fully healed?

Wait. And if you are having an algae problem, get Amano shrimp. They are known as the best algae eaters. Shrimp need stable parameters and a "mature" tank so wait until your tank is fully cycled. Hope your Betta is soon healed.

There's a guy on eBay selling them; am not sure about chain stores. They are real characters; you'll enjoy them a lot.
