Shrimp massacre

Went to the LFS today, couldn't resist buying this betta I saw, I have cherry shrimp but I thought I would risk it anyway sometimes they are okay, and I was very wrong! He didn't even eat them just went through them one by one killing them, so upsetting, completely my fault though, I think I can tick it off my growing list of mistakes made!

I once watched my father add amanos to his rainbow tank. They didn't even make it the the substrate the feeding was so furious. We live and learn.

Yeah, I added a half dozen amanos to my angel tank. Was a $12 dinner, although somehow one survived and is still zipping around in there somehow.
