Yeah, they do. I always leave them in there so the water doesn't lose any calcium - they dissolve/get eaten eventually.

Can anyone tell me what fish would eat the shrimp apart from Bettas. My shrimp are either hiding or dead. They used to be quite visible until i put this blue ram in. Any advice thanks. PS they were last seen (shrimp) under a piece of bog wood. Ta
