 nandy,  most  of  the  forums  and  articles  suggested  me  to  go  for  a  UV.  but  at  this  point  i  have  some  other  plans  for  my  5  footer  so  not  ready  to  spend  on  this  nano.  i  have  plans  of  new  set  of  lights,  a  new  hood  and  if  some  thing  is  left  a  chiller  then  Rock On  
 
 expensive  hobby  lol   Drinking  Wall Bang   Jester   Sick   Knock  
 
 i  already  have  a  UV  for  my  5  footer  which  i  dont  use  very  often  but  its  very  heavy  and  attached  to  my  canister.  
 lets  wait  for  a  week,  if  things  go  well  and  the  green  water  vanishes  as  said  by  saikumar  then  its  good.  else  will  have  to  run  UV  on  timer  or  else  get  a  small  UV  for  nano.

 Hi  Jaival  
 
 I  had  the  same  problem  on  my  tank  (  green  water  )  and  I  tried  the  "DO  AQUA  BE  CLEAR  "  and  followed  the  instructions  ,  and  the  green  water  cleared  up  in  4  days  time  and  has  never  returned  again.
 Dont  buy  a  UV  /  UV  filter  as  you  may  never  need  to  use  it  again.

 Jaival  
 
 I  had  shrimp  (cherry  red  )   in  the  tank  when  i  dosed  it  ,  and  they  were  fine  ,  besides  this  is  an  ADA  product  ,  so  you  could  check  on  the  website   or  ask  the  LFS  guys  about  it  .  
 It  is  just  a  phosphate  binder  ,  and  so  should  not  affect  shrimp  and  definitely  not  fish.  
 I  think  copper  in  many  forms  kills  shrimp  ,  this  doesn't  contain  it  ,  but  check  the  website  anyway  .

 very  minute  quantities  of  common  salt  (non-iodised  salt)  might  help  you  with  green  water  problem.
 i  have  found  it  the  best  solution  for  any  harmful  bacteria  or  algae  in  all  my  tanks..hasn't  harmed  my  FH,tetras,guppies,barbs,or  any  other  fish.
 but  i  cant  say  about  shrimps.experts  might  comment.
 If  you  have  dense  plantation  betta  would  do,else  avoid  betta..it  tends  to  mess  with  smaller  fishes/shrimps  sometimes  (personal  experience).
 
 cheers.

 Hi  Jaival,
       Fighter  +  shrimps  =  disaster
 
 Fighters  are  extremely  aggressive  and  gobble  up  Shrimps.

 betta  with  shrimps  is  not  safe..   If  you  keep  both  together  then  your  bettas  will  have  a  good  meal  every  day  ..
