Betta and RCS face off!

Here is a shot of my Betta (Jaws) facing off with one of the Red cherry shrimp. Thus far my RCS have done quite well. 44 gallon planted tank with 15 Neon Tetras,1 Betta, 3 Blue wag platys, and 3 otos.

they both just went about their business....

I was skeptical to get the RCS with my betta but haven't had a problem, even with the tiny shrimplets!

So your shrimp can breed an multiply with the betta? You give me hope for my planted 20 gallon with 1 betta and 12 cardinal tetras. I just put some shrimp in there and am hoping the betta doesn't eat even the adult shrimp. I see him hunting and poking around the bottom all day.

from all that i've read- it's a crap shoot on wether your betta will eat RCS. Some (like mine) do just fine- others become veracious shrimp hunters!
