    Ghost shrimp babies are quite hard to raise.

    They first go through a larval stage where they:
    1. Get eaten
    2. Get sucked up by the filter
    3. Starve to death because they are too small to eat foods

    But it is possible. How big is the hatchery?

    its pretty small but i cant take any picture although it has some holes in it but right now i have two baby fish in there and it's doing its job but the holes look pretty big to me
