    Yeah, Crystal red shrimps... Very expensive food for puffer ^_^... lol... still, ask Caf bout it, he managed to breed some... but wasn't easy :P

    good luck Squirt :P

    Btw, I'd go for some ghost shrimps to clean up the mess of your puffer... they're cheap and can do a fairly good clean-up job :P

    Bumblebee shrimp are black or brown and white striped - crystal red are red and white striped ;)

    They loooove java moss - moss balls - any kind of moss actually they will hang around in it all day...shrimp are not too fussy and love all plants

    Once you get a few and breed them you can test them with your dwarf puffers... some will ignore them... I have cherry red's and they breed worse than rabbits here so I thought to get rid by feeding the puffers - they nibbled at a few but I don't think they enjoyed the taste so the rest they left in peace now and again I would find a dead one... not sure the shrimp enjoy being in there with them though...

    I know of a lot of friends who have tried it though with smaller shrimp and it has not worked...

    ok...well the thing is...no one around here sells and kind of moss plant. So that could be a problem. I would order it inline or something but the folks wont let me.

    i think that i will get my 5g (which btw would have a bare bottom) and just use it to breed my bettas and maybe i will get some shrimp and see how it works out.

    EDIT- will bettas hurt the shrimp at all????
