love the betta! watch the peacock goby with the shrimp though. he attacks the airstone.....and the heater along with the filter intake.:) mine doesn't attack anything living as far as I know though....

Beautiful setups! And awesome Betta. I'm on the hunt for one, myself...

Bye bye shrimpies...

Took 5 Betta simplex all of 24 hours to decimate a VERY well established colony in my very heavily planted 46gal once.... :redface:

SNAP!!! Looks like we both bought from the same breeder:smile:


I just purchased this boy and a female to match to breed!
Got this one to show too (female is nice also)


I have kept Bettas for many years/bred and showed them to Championships. I have kept a Betta in a tank 2.5 gallon with Cherry shrimps with no problem. I even watched a shrimp jump in front of my Betta's head and he didn't even bother..I don't think they see very well!

Shrimps can easily outmanouver a Betta, so I wouldn't worry too much about him snacking on them...however any other fish might be a problem. I have baby Killifish living happily in my CRS tank (they hatched from eggs on the moss I moved over there) and they don't touch my shrimps at all.

Thanks! once is a blue moon i'll see the betta eat a baby shrimp but I don't mind since I have another tank with Taiwan fire reds and most shrimp hide. wow those bettas are beautiful! where did you get them from? I usually get them on aquabid but I'm waiting to set up my betta tank with dividers to switch him to that which I haven't seen any one use the idea I'm thinking about. And this Ebi tank will be only oebt and some other kind of Neo's

Took my new beta sorority less then 24 hours to kill every cherry in the tank. What I found interesting was that only 2 out of the 7 bettas were responsible. The other 5 were ignoring the shrimp.
