i know. i have one more worry and i think you could help me more, i have shrimps (cherry, amano and gabon) i also got paradise gourami (its dark black) you think its gonna eat my shrimps/harass them or he will be like a betta personality lottery?:'(
Just remember that they have roots too, and if you trim the leaves to make them fit, you won't be reucing the size of the roots.
i guess.. but they will have somewhere to hide anyways. ill see with two different sized shrimps to see if they will be live by tomorrow or not. if not, idk what to do. definitely not giving him away.Probably just like a Betta.
But shrimp are one of their natural foods in the wild... Not really a chance I would be taking.
