    A lot of people have mentioned having Ghost Shrimp, but I can't find any info on them. I was just wondering what they eat, what water perameters they like, suitable tank mates, size, etc.

    I have had a ghost shrimp in my 10 gallon tank for just about a year. He lives happily along with two black ruby barbs, a few different tetras, a cory cat, an otocinclus catfish and a snail. He eats leftover food on the bottom of the tank. Sometimes mine disappears for a week or so, but every time I do a water change, he comes out of hiding to investigate. He's so much fun to watch, floating around and swimming with all of his little legs. He is probably an inch to an inch and a half long. I would highly recommend getting a couple of these little guys.

    I posted a link, for a good site on ghost shrimp, in the misc. catergory.

    I looked at the site. I don't think I'll get any shrimp because my Bettas would probably eat them :p.

    Well, if the shrimp are large enough, your fish won't eat them :) Also-I'm not getting anymore, I only have 1 left out of the 4 I got :(

    What do you feed shrimp? Ive just bought 2 from my local store but it didnt say what type they were. Im still quite anxious about them eating my poor little frog

    Mine just eat what falls to the bottom (flake & granule food). What do yours look like? Did you go to the shrimp link (that I posted) and try to see what they might be? I really don't think shrimp like to eat frogs.
