    Introducing Ghost Shrimp With Betta?

    Beautiful tank! I just wanted to give a warning as I had just a rough weekend... becareful and make sure that you have the 1" ghost shrimp.

    A Moral Quandry About A Betta

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    That is scary because ive seen my betta try that. I do have a moss covering the hole... but didn't get a chance to attach it entirely. I found shrimp hanging out in between the moss and coconut so i just placed it back in the tank. Minded my own business after that like I never saw them.

    Fish Depression Is Real

    Great article! I read this earlier today and sent it to a few friends. I sometimes see me betta "moping" around and then I'll buy something new for the tank and he will be up and about again. I absolutely agree that they do feel down and bored. They are animals just like us. I also appreciated...

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    @Ankers ... we got moved over here. Hope I didn't get anyone upset. ... I would love to get some cherries and I recently saw they have blue ones too but I'm so afraid. My amano shrimp have hidden well enough to where I think they can survive. Just feel bad they hide all the time. From my killer...

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    So this pic is my tank... I'm not sure if it just needs more plants, which I plan on getting... (btw I did find 1 shrimp hiding in the moss yesterday and was told unless I see shells, they should be good) I do have a 10 gallon tank (for now). Took a year to figure out parameters but I also did...

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    So basically ... it will eventually happen? I'm holding onto hope... it seems others on here have success but then again it's never told hold long they have been cohabiting together.

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    I know. I'm hoping this may work but I did see him chasing them. People said the shrimp are faster than bettas but I had to put my hand in the tank to stop him. He was right on the shrimp... I was quite surprised!

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    Ok so.... I guess these shrimp are called ghost shrimp for a reason... I decided to purchase another nerite snail which was not moving at all... after acclimating and putting out an algae wafer and 4 hours later... He s skating around... So trying to re-attach moss to my coconut cave... lifted...

    Contemplating Shrimp With Betta

    Would yu suggest maybe a bigger tank? I felt the same way too. What kind of life is it to be in fear forever? I actually fell in love with these guys. :banghead: My betta is deceiving aside from the fact that he flares whenever he sees my husband. So I thought maybe I have a shot at this. After...
