    are shrimps ok with dwarf frogs? I heard that the bite the frogs legs off

  3. FishFan Member Member

    Oh no. Ghost Shrimp are small. I have African frogs and my Ghost Shrimp together and so far, no problems! (and if they get too naughty, I could have a feast! Shrimp & frog legs!) j/k of course.

    Oh good. are all shrimps ok with little frogs? What do you feed them and are they difficult to look after? are they even interesting tank mates to have?

  5. FishFan Member Member

    I have 3 Ghost Shrimp left (one became snail food shortly after I added it & it died) and 2 African frogs (that can get Silver Dollar size) and they are very interesting to watch! I know they sell frog food, but I read up on them and they eat the leftover food that falls to the bottom. (I feed flake food & granules in the morning and Brine shrimp, a pinch of flake & a pinch of granules in the evening).

    Oh. good. i was worried about my little frog. I only see him eat when i feed them frozen blood worm once a week. so he isnt starving then?
  7. FishFan Member Member

    If he's not dead...he's not starving ;) Also-I only see mine come out later at night...after I turn 1/2 the lights out.

    Excellent! They are so much fun to watch! Depending on what you got in your tank, your shrimp will do great, or be a great lunch! Let us know how they do! ;)
  14. inari Well Known Member Member

    yep a great lunch atleast u don't have to worry about them all being eaten at once.....

    That site doesn't tell me the behavior characteristics of the Cherry Red Shrimp, and Bumble Bee Shrimp. I rarely see my Bumble Bee shrimp. They must hide a lot in my driftwood and only come out at night. I see the one Cherry Red a lot more often, and the other Cherry Red usually at night. I'm wondering if they're nocturnal by nature? And are the Bumble Bee more timid?
