i thought of moving one of my corys over, but it's only a 5g tank. Probably just look for a cool large snail.

well here's all I know about shrimp (because I crave them too... gotta wait to see if I can set up my first tank and get a betta in it first though)

This site has almost everything you'll ever want to know about freshwater aquarium shrimp! <3 I LOVE this site!!! http://www.planetinverts.com/shrimp_species.html

Here is a site that sells all kinds of shrimp: http://www.fancyshrimps.com/

your best bet is to find a breeder though. =]

I'd love to own a bunch of cardinal/crystal/cherry shrimp, yellow shrimp, blue tiger shrimp (of a medium, light, and dark hue), and a few ghost shrimp! I'm all about variety! =]

You guys did know that Betta would eat shrimp,right?? In fact,my very own first Veil Betta was being fed with "live" shrimp. Yeah,I am cruel on shrimp,but.....Betta likes the taste and growing well. So,realistically,the shrimp for Betta is :food

Oh,one side note,cherry red shrimps were start breeding from Taiwan,yup,that's place I am from. Shrimp required cold,clean and high-oxygenic environ. It's not very easy keep them by the amateur providing you got appropriate equipment.

Well, in my case it was a bit of an experiment. i've seen some people use shrimps with bettas, and i've had shrimps in my community tank for a couple of months before the other fish clued in that they were really tasty. :)

Well,as I have seen. Betta just chasing around and ate the shrimp when it got hungry. Technically,Betta is carnivorous species,it would eat any small fish that swimming around it.

And Betta hates cold,high-oxygenic tank which contrarily with shrimp,therefore,they two are not good companion,IMHO.
