Ghost shrimp?

saw some at petco and thot they were cool

i want to put them in my com with female bettas and a snail and neon and glowlite tetras, and then put some in my 20 gal with ym male betta. Will this work? do they just eat the algae off the walls of the tank?

They are peaceful and are scavengers and will eat anything that goes to the bottom of the tank but i am not sure if they are algae eaters.

when you feed your fish they will eat whatever is left, i usually feed my fish flakes and whatever goes to the bottom they will eat.

yeah they eat the same stuff your fish do basically. Problem is many bettas will attempt to eat them, or at least rip them to shreds. If they can survive long enough, eventually the bettas may leave them alone.

You would also need a fair amount of ground cover for most bettas. I've found that moss will help and some bettas are known to only go after shrimp when the shrimp have no cove, or area to retreat to
