I got 11 blue shrimp yesterday and put them in my super heavily planted betta tank. Since there are so many places to hide I can usually only see 3 or 4 at a time.

I’m just worried some will die and I won’t know. Will their bodies mess with my water conditions?

Funny I gave a coworker about 10 cherry shrimp about 2weeks ago to add to his betta tank. He added them to the tank and the betta ate every one of them .

Oh no that’s horrible!

My betta hasn’t acknowledged them yet! I’ve been staring at the tank like a madwoman for 24 hours. Lol

I think even if he wanted to eat them all he couldn’t though, there are so many places they can hide he can’t fit!

Thank you so much!

And you have no idea! It’s such a challenge to find them, they seem to love their new jungle.

I have ordered 20 more so hopefully they breed and I get a population big enough to see them!

Sorry it did sound a bit confusing, I was just trying to agree with you about probably not being able to find them even with 100 in there.

I hadn’t realized how much they would love staying in the plants!
