Ghost shrimp eating a dying ghost shrimp

Okay, I know this may sound grim to some, but after all, it is their nature.

I saw one ghost shrimp not doing well for some unknown reason. It was laying on its side and kicking but not reacting much to external stimuli.

I grabbed the new camera to get a better view from a macro shot and after I did this, another ghost shrimp approach and started to eat the dying one. I decided to document this event on video.

Betta getting caught in the “Tunnel of Doom”

My fish, like many others, seem to love getting into tight places. In this case, I had doubled up the panel in a spot where the two fish liked to flare at each other hoping to reduce that just a bit.

Turns out that Red just wanted to get between the panels, going through the “Tunnel of Doom” over and over again.

Don’t worry, Red was always safe, and was able to leave on his own. And after I removed the double panel, he found plenty of other places to get into.
