How many shrimp can I keep with a betta?

Asked: Nathalie Porchet, Last Updated:

They only get up to an inch long, so make sure that there is plenty of cover and that the betta is well fed or else your shrimp may become an expensive appetizer. They produce very little to no waste, meaning you can have 10 shrimp per gallon. They're good for cleaning up, as they'll also eat any algae in the aquarium.
