I am thinking about getting some cherry shrimp or some ghost shrimp when I start my tank back up. It is more than likely going to be a 10 gallon. I am hoping to have either guppies or tetras. I am still deciding on the fish. Would it make a difference which shrimp I have?
Cherry shrimp are smaller and will breed more readily, but are much more expensive. Ghost shrimp are not so easily seen, hence the name, and are larger. Some species of ghost shrimp can get aggressive and can attack fish. In a smaller tank, there is a higher chance of that happening. I've never had a problem with my ghost shrimp, but it's happened to others.
I would get cherry shrimp. There are also yellow cherry shrimp, fyi
