    I went to get blue velvets but fell in love with red crystal shrimp S grade instead Dx so I got two to see if I could keep them alive before getting several more. What are there chances of survival and how long before I will know if they will survive in my care?(a month? A week?)
    **I have fluval stratum and my tank is set to 80° but I will lower it to 78° tonight. Tankmates are 5 harlequin Rasbora and 1 betta and soon a nerite snail or mystery snail. It's a 15g.

    Hopefully this aquarium is fully cycled. I’d say you’ll know in a two weeks if they’re doing well especially if they’re active and eating well. With those tank mates though it’ll be iffy if any shrimplet offspring would survive without the tank being heavily planted and the filter intake covered.

    If the tank is densely planted, it should be okay to house them there. But the there is always the chance of adult shrimp getting eaten by the betta, and the shrimplets will be eat if seen by the other fish. WIthout plants, its going to be shrimp armageddon
