Now that Ray, my Crowntail Betta, has my 10 gallon tank nice and cycled; I decided to see if he would get along with other living things in his tank. As it turns out, he does fairly well so far... only having eaten 1 out of the 9 ghost shrimp we had purchased. We had put them into the tank at night; and sure enough the following morning we caught him with a mouth full of shrimp, trying to finish off the antennae. It's day two now and aside from pestering the poor shrimp, he doesn't seem intent on actually eating any more of them.
I suppose I should ask: Is Ray going to be alright? He looks and is acting fine, but his stomach looks HUGE after that oversized meal. He's still been hungry, and if I try to skip any feedings he starts aggressively chasing the shrimp again. >_<;;
All poor quality phone pictures of a shrimp standing on the heater, an old picture of Ray with his onion, and a new picture of Ray chasing off the ghost shrimp I was trying to photograph while it was still on the onion.
