Would feed shrimp's sparingly in Five gal maybe once every other day, or every two day's without overfeeding for the day(s) of no food.My 5 gallon just finished cycling (with aqua soil) and I soon plan to add 2 amanos and maybe some RCS. Once those guys settle in, I also plan to add a betta. Will the shrimp produce enough of a bioload to keep enough beneficial bacteria going for when the betta comes or should I be worried about a mini cycle happening?
Would feed the betta same schedule while keeping in mind that tiny shrimp might present a snack for the fish regardless of how much commercial food is being offered.(shrimp would be natural food)
Not much dilution of pollution due to relatively small volume of water so organic input will have greater effect .:wink2:
Should be no issues with mini cycle lest too much food or dead decaying plant matter contribute to ammonia level's .
