Good evening from Sydney,

I was looking into getting some ghost shrimp for my betta tank just to clean up uneaten food and any algae.

I went into my local pet store and said what I wanted and where its going and they advised agaisnt getting shrimp as the likelyhood they are going to be eaten by the betta is high.

I have just done my water tests and these are the results -

The last watechange was 12/05/19.

PH - 7.6
High Range PH - 8.2
Ammonia - 0ppm
Nitrite - 0ppm
Nitrate - 0ppm

I have also attached a photo of the 5G tank, front view and also birdseye view.

So my question is, will ghost shrimp be okay or is there something else I can get?

Thanks

JC

I am wondering the same thing. I have a divided 10 gal with a betta in each side.

You can try...most bettas will pop shrimp once they figure out they are in there.

If you do try them,you need some guppy grass or hornwort- and a ton of hiding places for the ghost shrimp so they can avoid the betta.

How did you change your water in December of this year? Just kidding . Adding anything with a betta is usually hit or miss depending on their specific personality.
