    Shrimp missing after adding them?

    I had bought five shrimp just a day ago. Later last night I only counted two. Today I can't see any. I siphoned the gravel, nothing. Then I picked up some decorations and found one dead body. I think they might've all died but I can't find more bodies and I don't want to cause an ammonia spike...

    Fish larger than average

    I have noticed that my otocinclus catfish looks larger than most pictures I see of them on the internet. The same thing goes for one of my ghost shrimp. Is there something wrong with them? Why are they so big?

I've only ever owned my betta because I took him in after having to use a betta fish in a somewhat cruel and cramped ecocolumn experiment at school. I've been wanting to upgrade him to a bigger tank...

There is also one of two Ghost Shrimp that were egg laden when we bought a batch to be Eel food, and so we let her live in my mum's tank. She has a lot of personality and is the hardest working...
