    We are considering getting Ghost shrimp for the tanks . I noticed at the LFS that they require aquarium salt in the tank . Is this correct, or can i place them in a " normal" freshwater tank?

    Ghost shrimp survive really well in either condition. :) You'll see mixed info because ghost shrimp go from fw to brackish to marine throughout their reproductive life cycle.

    Thank you for the info.
    I am not looking to breed them, I just wanted to add them for some change of pace in the tanks. ie... Wanted a bottem feeder that wasn't the norm (Cory cats, loaches, pleco.....)

    I think they should be fine. I like ghosts and cherries too.

    But I Love corydoras. ;)
