SNAP!!! Looks like we both bought from the same breeder
I just purchased this boy and a female to match to breed!
Got this one to show too (female is nice also)
I have kept Bettas for many years/bred and showed them to Championships. I have kept a Betta in a tank 2.5 gallon with Cherry shrimps with no problem. I even watched a shrimp jump in front of my Betta's head and he didn't even bother..I don't think they see very well!
Shrimps can easily outmanouver a Betta, so I wouldn't worry too much about him snacking on them...however any other fish might be a problem. I have baby Killifish living happily in my CRS tank (they hatched from eggs on the moss I moved over there) and they don't touch my shrimps at all.
Thanks! once is a blue moon i'll see the betta eat a baby shrimp but I don't mind since I have another tank with Taiwan fire reds and most shrimp hide. wow those bettas are beautiful! where did you get them from? I usually get them on aquabid but I'm waiting to set up my betta tank with dividers to switch him to that which I haven't seen any one use the idea I'm thinking about. And this Ebi tank will be only oebt and some other kind of Neo's
Nice tank and fish. I keep ghost shrimp in my betta tanks and they dont bother the, but they are hard to see. My betta eats snails which can be hard to see also, so I guess it depends on the fish. BTW if OVT changes his mind I will take those shrimp off your hands.
