I have them in my sorority and my divided tank for males. They really help clean up food and plant debris. They swim up to grab betta pellets when I feed. They also like bloodworms and daphnia.
Grrr, I want Crystals but most of them are so darn expensive! I just got some cherry shrimp juvies and I am having a small 2.5 NPT for them to grow out and hopefully make the babies.Nay, simply because I prefer red cherries. But I'd have ghosties if I couldn't have my cherries or crystal reds!
I wouldn't have bought them at full price, but I got them through our local aquarium society, where everything is a fraction of the price it should be. I got 17 for maybe $40, as I remember.Grrr, I want Crystals but most of them are so darn expensive!

So just voice your opinion on them.... yay or nay?
I personally love them. 3 gallon tank, 3 ghosties, 1 betta, plants, a heater, an air pump, and a moss ball. With a little tea mug for a hidey-hole
The shrimp are so cute... they climb all over everything, pick through the gravel, are translucent (how cool!! hehe), and I love to watch them clean themselves. Their motto could be "Busy, busy, busy" because they're always doing something ^_^
Aww... poor things. Hopefully their deaths were quick? Well my Omelette is not aggressive toward the shrimpies... they're very bold because they sometimes nibble on his fins (this is where he flips out and tries to nom them) but if he gets too close to them, they pinch him xD He's tried nomming them a few times but he's lost interest. He just watches them :3 I'm so glad my fishy is good to them...ehehI tried this with my betta... they didnt last the night in a 10gallon tank my betta killed them all didnt eat 1 :-\ so i say not a good idea for the shrimp
