No we can't keep any of the kittens but we are keeping Misha the momma
Ghost shrimp actually don't eat algae, they're strictly scavengers so you'd need Red Cherry Shrimp or Amano shrimp to take care of it however Amano's poop A LOT! and then RCS are more like snacks for Betta's than other shrimp are.
oh yeah its okay :) ive been busy as well, trying to fiqure out if i should get a ghost shrimp...my tank gets stuff (algae or something) on the sides and rocks and deco like every 2days..so idunno...anyways are you keep any of the kittens? me, well im great, just wishing for another tank soon before i go nuts, lolz xD
