They are super sneaky. They must have been hiding way back in the corner I could not see.

how sneaky are they? Have they ever tried to escape or successfully escaped from the tank? I was thinking about getting a few for my tank but I was worried about them escaping...i used to house those red-clawed crabs and always wound up chasing them around my room.

As long as you have a cover on they shouldn't get past that. Mine just figured out how to get through 2 dividers and can hide very well.

On the other note Houdini got into the other side of the tank and was mauled by my other CT, Urkle. Then got stuck between the two dividers I have and while my boyfriend and I fished him out my two CT's were circling like sharks.

It's ok to laugh, I was laughing but my boyfriend wasn't. I was beyond entertained by my betta's antics the entire time.
I only got three to test out for a reason.

4 of the six ghost shrimps i had quickly learned to hide- the other 2 did not so they got killed quickly. Not eaten but just mauled! Now one of my GS has eggs underneath her and I dont think i want to really be a baby shrimp mom.

I wouldn't worry, they'll all be snacks for your betta anyways. >.> My littlest shrimp is the one that gotten eaten, and my medium sized one got mauled. My biggest one I have no seen.

Another question. What do you feed your ghost shrimp and how do you feed them? If the betta is going to eat everything you through in there, how are the shrimp gonna get anything?
I feed my guy 2 pellets in the morning and 2-3 frozen glassworms (mosquito larvae) at night as I do not want to overfeed him.
