i bought 3 red claw shrimp from a TPT member to take care of my nuisance snail problem. the first night i had them in my old 20g, they ripped up a beta pretty good and i think destroyed quite a few red cherry shrimp.
i took the beta out and gave the little bugger his own 5g and he's pretty happy right now.
i then moved everyone else into a 36g about a month later. the extra space has calmed everyone down. i'm also having a problem with the buggers DIGGING into the substrate. i'd rather they don't do this since i have DIRT under the cap of flourite.
threads i found:
so..... is that the definitive answer? any other suggestions to keep them from terrorizing the rest of the inhabitants?
if all else fails...... i have the option of setting up a spare 10g (i think the 5g would be too small) for the three of these guys, or i can sell them to someone on here who wants them.
