Yesterday I added 9 ghost shrimp to my 55 gallon aquarium (which also has 6 peppered cories and 3 false julii cories; I'm getting 3 more julii cories as soon as my LFS gets more). Today I noticed that one was eating something. I'm not sure hat it was, but it looked like a part of a shrimp. They're next to impossible to count, so I'm not even going to try to count them at the moment. My question is, when a shrimp molts, will it eat its own exoskeleton/shell? I've never had shrimp before, so I have no clue. I'm also 99% sure that some of these shrimp are actually amano :/ This shouldn't be a huge problem. What are the differences between amano and ghost shrimp? Also, are there any tricks to counting how many shrimp are in a tank? It would be great to know if and when a shrimp has died. Thanks!
