If I have a 75 gallong medium-heavily planted tank. Would it be possible to put 4-6 bammboo/wood shrimp and 20-40 amano shrimp with a female betta sorority 8-16 bettas. I have started to get some ready in a 20 gallon tank I have 5 in there, I will get 4 ghoat shrimps in quarantine and put them in there some time soon and see how they do if they are fine with the ghost I think they will do fine with the amanos but what about the wood shrimp?

I've had all my bettas with all kinds of shrimp. All are fine. Cherries tend to be problematic for people, but amanos tend to have a better chance. Sometimes it still won't work for some people. Bamboos, being even bigger, should do fine too. My vampire has always done well with bettas and other fish. If the ghosts do well, I'd say the others would do better. The tank size should go a long way as well. Let the tank mature for the bamboos before you get them if you do though.

I have not kept shrimp with my bettas before, but I hear they do fine....with a tank that big the fish won't even know there are shrimp in there!

I will send a pic later if I remember, it is pretty big but many people own even bigger. King of DIY owns a 2000 gallon tank I recommend watching him. You also get used to the size after a while but you first few days to few weeks it seems really big. My tank I have now is 4ft long by 1.5ft wide and almost 2 feet tall (20in).

My betta sorority actively hunted and killed my shrimp. I tried cherry shrimp and ghost shrimp.
I now have a shrimp only tank, and a betta "harem" in their own tank.
