Unfortunately, ghost shrimp are often sold as live feeder shrimp rather than shrimp to maintain in a tank. Thus, they are often kept in crowded conditions. Hopefully, yours will survive.

I plan on trying to get some to grow out and try to get some healthy ones down a few generations. I don't know why, but I find them fasciating.

I understand. I had a few in my 40 gallon breeder and enjoyed watching them until the plants got so thick I rarely saw them. You should get a small tank with just shrimp. Oddly enough, I have tanks with nice blue and red neocaridinas, but I almost enjoy watching the cull tank more. I never know what color or pattern I'll see next.

I got my first pair end of September. that pair is 3 now. I got my 2nd pair beginning November.

I'm kicking up a 2nd tank now and while waiting for it's inhabitants to occupy (3 more weeks in qt) I'm thinking to get another pair for the new tank.

I hadn't thought about it. I only thought the environment they were in wasn't conducive for hatching and not really planning a new environment. but maybe I'll research further. or just let nature rule. Atm...I'm just enjoying the show
