Three of the shrimp seem to have ganged up on the fighting fish and are eating it from the fins in. Yuck.

mmmmm. nature.
actually, uh, would those be found in nature, near each other? (those shrimp in tropical rice paddies?)

also, having had to google for beta/fighting fish info, before, for acquaintances who bring one home and then go "i wonder if ___ is alright "
or "I bet feeding it ___ is just fine.", I think you're supposed to avoid putting them in with fin-nippers of any kind...

but, uh, should be interesting to watch.

(did they get his wallet?)

Gross ... are they fresh water shrimp?

Yeah... betas can't be with anything that nip fins and shrimp love to do that.

I find that betas can only co-habitate with small tetras... betas will either attack everything else, or get their fins eaten off and drown because they can't get to the surface for air (no, seriously).

In our defence, this is another housemate's fishtank, the dozy bugger brought the eatee downstairs from his other tank cos another fish in that tank had an infection. Not entirely sure how that works, shurely just increasing the chances of massed fish death... I dunno, no fishologist I.

As it 'appens the fish got stripped to the bone in about 24 hours.

Don't worry Rich... we didn't think you'd set out to get your fish eaten :-)

No. ..poor Lovely Blue fish though!

Nature can be both beautiful and cruel... both at the same time too.
