Thanks, a while ago I did hear of "coke" shrimp but I don't think I ever saw any pictures of them. But to me she reminds me of Cadbury Milk chocolate. I will be very intereseted to see what the next generation brings from this tank.

Just got some new photos of my chocolate cherry shrimp. The large dark female with the pronounced stripe is the remaining surviving female from the first crossing of a black male cherry to a dark red female (the other shrimp sadly got scoffed by the damsel fly invasion grrrrr) . The other two are the recent freebies I was sent from Durro68. P1000641_zpsb2598d0f.jpg P1000647_zpsee7217bf.jpg

      Shrimps will do well with just a sponge filter operated with a air pump, that's the very least you should have in the tank if you intend to keep the shrimps, if you don't intend to keep the shrimps, just feed them to your betta.

      I re-read the post, and I see the shrimp have been moved. As Simon, said, it's best to get the tank at least an air sponge filter.

      I think they have separated the shrimp into their own small tank but the betta is still in the big tank if I have read it rightly?  Simon

      Not a good sign. The fish already has a taste for shrimp. If the shrimp aren't too damaged now, wait till the betta gets hungry.   You need a filter, but more so for your betta.

      Sorry to hear that putting your shrimps with the betta didn't go well. My first betta couldn't have shrimps either as he would go after them. My current betta is ok though, he gets very close and watches them but nothing else? It would be best to have a filter if you can get one small enough, and if it is adjustable have it on low flow because it is a small tank, the shrimps are fine in flowing slow water,! Are you planning to keep them in this tank long-term or is this tank temporary until you decide where to go next with them? It is possible that some may die from injuries/stress/shock etc, but hopefully they will be ok. Simon
