I wanted to give red cherry shrimp a try. I went to 4 LPS/LFS before I even found a place that had any in stock. Well...they had 1 in stock. Although I wanted more than 1, I figured it would be a good test to see how my betta would do with them. Was it gonna be an expensive snack, something he chases (entertains him), or something he ignores? Well it's definitely not the latter!
My question is....should I invest in more shrimp if this little guy makes it through the night? Would more "targets" make it less likely for him to kill/eat them? Or am I just offering him more snacks? I'm reluctant to try ghost shrimp because I've heard they can do a number on fins/tails.
