My ghost shrimp are cannibals!!!

In my tank I have 1 betta, 3 ghost shrimp, 2 snails and 1 cory cat.

During feeding time, Stefon (betta) gets 2 pellets and a tiny pinch of freezedried worms. The cory gets 2 shrimp pellets and everyone else gets "leftovers", lol.

Yesterday all 3 shrimp went after the shrimp pellet and sucked it up like a hoover!


Anyone else have this happen? Is it ok? Will they end up like little silence of the lambs shrimps?! AHHHHH! LoL

Um...I would guess it's fine, I mean I have a parrot and you can feed the turkey, though I never have. No, I don't think your shrimps are serial killers either, lol

Ha, nope shouldnt be a problem. My shrimp eat the leftovers that my betta leaves all the time. Not cannibals (Well by definitions yes, but....) just scavengers. They'll be fine :)
