I brought home a small cleaning crew for my little 2 gallon betta tank--2 ramshorn snails and 1 shrimp(lfs had it labelled only as "algae eating shrimp"). Well, Betta Bob was thrilled to be brought such a fine afternoon shrimp snack!! It was about 1 1/4" long and seemed to face down the betta in their first encounter. However, in the time it took me to do a ph test, the shrimp was gone. Unless it has burrowed into the sand, it's now an ex shrimp!
Right now, BB is looking really p'd off about the snails being in his home. He cruises around them and nudges the bigger one with his nose. He's very frustrated!
Does anyone know of any shrimp that would not meet the same fate?
If I can get the ph right and run a small filter, I'm thinking of trying some pygmy cory's if I can find some. Sound reasonable?
Being crazy keeps me from going insane.
