I am NEW to Betta ownership, have a 3 gallon with one male Betta. Fish store told me to keep some ghost shrimp with him, they gave me 9. After reading your site, it seems I should only have one or two in that small of a tank...The fish store won't take the others back. Should I euthanize? How to do it? Still learning, D.

I am fairly sure the Betta will take care of that.

I've had all the ghost shrimp for 2 wks and the Betta doesn't seem a bit interested in helping me to take care of the "overpopulation" of ghost shrimp.

As long as you are doing regular waterchanges, I doubt you are going to have much trouble. Otherwise:

Shrimp Scampi :

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
1 pound uncooked shrimp, peeled, deveined
4 to 6 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Additional lemon wedges for accompaniment
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for accompaniment
12 ounces angel hair or linguine pasta, cooked according to package directions

1. Preheat oven to 400*F (205*C).
2. Place the butter in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish and place in oven until butter melts. Remove from oven and add the shrimp, garlic, wine and lemon juice to the melted butter, stirring to blend well. Return dish to oven and bake shrimp for 3 minutes; then mix in the parsley and bake until shrimp are just cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Mound the hot cooked linguine in a large serving bowl. Spoon shrimp mixture over and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately with the Parmesan cheese for sprinkling and lemon wedges to squeeze on individual servings, as desired.

Makes 4 servings.
