They have both embers and cpds at the lfs thankfully, they have pretty much anything I could think about stocking tbh, I think I'll end up with embers and maybe some rcs and a nerite

The lfs had a really mellow betta in with the embers, would a betta eat the shrimp? Theyre so pretty but I know they can be really temperamental

If u have a lot of moss and u get the shrimp as adults. Then u might be good. But the betta will snack on the babies. But with a lot of moss, some babies should survive.

Ok, the tank will be modestly planted and I have a marimo moss ball, I'll have to look into getting normal aquatic moss too. Is the pH the embers like okay for rcs and bettas as well? Oh and I got peat moss! I'm gonna measure the pH again in the morning, tanks for the suggestion (sorry for all these questions >.<)

I am not 2 great with shrimp. But i think they like it acidic as well. The betta likes it low, i know that for sure. And yes i meant java moss or christmas tree moss, the shrimp like that more, i believe. I am happy 2 have some1 that actually listens 2 me. But at the same time does a little of there own research as well.

I wouldn't put embers in a 5 gallon. They DO grow over an inch and while the bioload may not be too large for the tank, the fish need room to swim. I think you should stick to a betta, shirmp and a nerite.

No the most that embers get is 4/5 of an inch. U may get 1 or 2 that reach an inch.
