2.5 gallon betta tank

Sharing images of my planted 2.5 gallon betta tank. It has 1 betta (of unknown breed) and 6 red cherry shrimps. I just wanted to see if bettas would do well in non-plain tanks.

(Not sure how the images will turn up as I'm using Tapatalk to upload)

If you can get a photo of the betta flaring (fins stretched out at full glory) people can help you identify breed, some people can get their bettas to flare with just a finger against the glass, some use a small mirror.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

He leaves the shrimp alone?

Usually Bettas leave the shrimp alone, if they are big enough, but you probably won't see a rise in the shrimp population anytime soon.

I so desperately want to house shrimp with any of my 14 Bettas but I have yet to be successful. Ive tried introducing the Betta into a shrimp tank and shrimp into a Betta tank and it always ends the same with the Betta flaring, chasing then attacking the shrimp.

Not at the start. After a while though he learned that the shrimp are not edible items.
