Exclamation Ghost Shrimp questions!

How many, if any at all, ghost shrimp can go into a 3 gallon tank with one betta? I read that they have less waste than snails and and they ARE kind of cute. ^.^ Is there anything special they need in their diet?

You could have about 5. They eat anything. Shrimp Pellets, Algea Wafers, fish food, veggies...

Coolio! I bought two of them yesterday instead of a snail and I wanted to be sure. :)

:D Good. They are pretty cute, too. They should thrive in the 3 gallon.

In a 3g upto 6 depending on decor, if you have plants and stuff for them to climb on I'd go upto 6, if not much decor then 3-4.
