So I decided to add 3 ghost shrimp to my 3.5 gallon tank. For the first few hours the betta didn't notice them but now he is actively swimming around and hunting them. They keep going to different hiding spots and the betta finds them flushes them out and chases one. I have noticed he keeps checking the spots they have been hiding in over and over.
I hope my betta doesn't get stressed chasing them around. Hopefully he will just give up and deal with it. Needless to say I am not expecting the ghost shrimp to last he will get lucky eventually if he keeps at it.
Any other stories of betta doing this to their ghost shrimp? I will give an update if he eats any of them.
