Hi! I am wondering if it would be ok to add a some ghost shrimp to my 2.5 gallon betta tanks. (There are 4 dividided sections in my 10 gallon) If so, how many?
I breed bettas and have a very small room so I need to make most of my space. I feel like some shrimp would add a lot to the tank but just wanted to make sure the bettas would be ok with it. I could just take a couple out of my 39 gallon sorority. Each section of the boys tank is decently live planted with sand and fluvle stratum substrate- they each have a much needed coconut hide as well. The boys are spoiled- they get live food every single day. My one boy will eat but 1 brand of pellets.. Picky.. They all do good with there space. They are plakat, crown or veil tail as well so don't have the huge half moon tails..Normally, i would probably say "worth a shot". I am curious why so many dividers in a 10 gal though?
If it doesn't work out, I can just pop them back into there old tank (after drip acclamation that is LOL!)They might be ok with them. Never really know til you tree. Ghosts are a little bigger after all
Or they are found dead...who knows, i hear they can get a little pinchy themselvesIf it doesn't work out, I can just pop them back into there old tank (after drip acclamation that is LOL!)
They have been good with my female bettas and have survived them and the fiddler crabs so high hopes LOL! If they are dead.. Not to be mean but,..oh well, I have a lot...Or they are found dead...who knows, i hear they can get a little pinchy themselves
It is alot more then 5 inches.Its only 5 inches of space for either the betta to escape getting pinched, or the shrimp to escape getting dismembered. If I were you I would not add the shrimp.
