My bettas ate them all.

:)

Good snack. LOL Luckily, all the tanks I put them in are all cycled, so water sensitivities weren't a problem. I think I still have a few left... Maybe two? LOL

I feed mine algae wafers, and they also eat the algae in the tank. I found they like to nibble on the veggies I feed my mystery snail. :)

Kepp the water clean! I was away for 10 days and didn't get to clean the tank, and one of my shrimp died. They're quite sensitive.

Other than that, make sure they also have small hiding places where they can molt without being injured.

Mine would just eat whatever I fed my girls. Pellets, brine shrimp (canibalism!?), and I occasionally fed them little pieces of tropical fish flakes.

I have 6 with my betta and dont have any problems at all, my tank is also cycled. I have a tiny one in there too and thought my betta would eat him but he is still alive and kicking. They eat with the corys (wafers) and some times I found them trying to eat a whole betta pellet.

Ask them whether they have them or not. People usually by like 20 at a time because they are feeders. So, usually they are out of them. Try going on the day they restock (For the bettas, my pet smart restocks on friday) and in the morning. Most pet smart open at nine.
