"Torturing" -- excuse me?

"state of constant stress" -- um, no. Not at all.

Perhaps you did not provide enough cover for them? If your own shrimp appeared "tortured" and stressed. Or perhaps...

My betta loves his bristlenoses. By which I mean, he does not attack them.. lol.

But many bottom feeders grow quite big, or have to be kept in shoals, and 5g might be a bit small. Snails are...

I was looking for prawnish poems, but most of them are about the marine varieties. I found this one, though - and the river prawns are really just little long-armed yabbies by nature. Not sure I'd...

I'd personally give the swords a miss for 10 gallon tanks. They'll very soon look cramped, as they can outgrow a 100 gallon tank, eventually! Cryptocorenes are better for root-planted lea***e in a...
