My red cherry schrimp has been attacked (some pics)

I was taking some photos until my betta attacked one of my 4 red cherry schrimps.

The schrimps have a paralysis in his tail, and was attacked two times more, he bit in her tail. So I put in the moss but I think she is going to die. But while I was writing this thread my betta attacked her again and now she is in the middle of the tank fish.

Do I remove the shrimp die or leave there until my betta eat her?


Information of my fish tank; 10g, heater, filter, good temperature, 1 Betta, 1 nerite snail, 3 schrimps (before 4).



After my betta attacked her.



HE was getting ready..



After he bit her again.


How he was attacking her, I put her below moss


And some of her partners come to her.. to eat? cheer? care her?




My Betta got crazy or maybe He was stressed because I took some picture with flash.. I donīt know. :(

I would let the Betta eat the shrimp.

If you want to keep the other shrimp you better get them out quick. Your Betta has already killed one.

I wouldn't add any other shrimp. Now you know your male will kill them.

you could try adding some more places for them to hide. maybe a few pieces of driftwood and some more moss or something

Yes I though that, but Iīm going to change the substrate so until the end of the week or next week I wonīt buy anything... Also the moss itīs difficult to find here.

I've never had cherry shrimp, but is it possible that the shrimp shed its skin and that is what the betta picked at? I don't know what the shed skin looks like once it's off the shrimp.

Just a hopeful thought. I'm most likely wrong.

When I first had bettas, I tried putting shrimp with them and my fish would always eat them. I gave up on keeping them together after a couple tries

I donīt think so, because the skin was very attached to the body.


By the way, I bring good news, My betta and my shrimps are friends again, here there are some pictures. Maybe the betta donīt attack them anymore because he doesnīt like the taste..

The food is a skinless pea, the shrimps love it! and the betta look like too! hehehe







PS, yesterday I changed the substrate.
