    today i went to petco to get some cory cats to help with my water flea problem. well when i went in i looked in the ghost shrimp tank and only had 3..... 2 are berried girls with legs full of eggs. i got all three and 2 spotted corys to go in with my CT betta Sushi.... and suprisingly Sushi isnt attacking them. when a shrimp got too close sushi flaired and the shrimp backed off. i think this was a good buy :)

    Will be interesting to see how your boy reacts to the babies when they hatch

    I have ghostie fry they are so cool to watch and I just noticed my other female getting it on with one of the males so I do believe she will be berried soon to :). I will be getting my three Pygmy pandas April 20 cuz that is when they will be old enough to come in my tank

    Ghost shrimp fry? I was under the impression that they need brackish water to get passed the larvae stage. I have had them for about a year and no sign of any fry. Cherries however are breeding like rabbits.

    They are however a great addition to any tank. Full of character for such a tiny 'feeder' shrimp. Good choice.

    i have an odd question... one of my shrimp (the only one not berried) was sitting on a plant spitting out this white little balls that slowly desolved. he was doing this the entire time cleaning himself. none of my other shrimp do this....well all 3 of my other shrimp are female.

    what was he doing?
