    Hey guys I was wondering if I introduce ghost shrimp to my tank would they devour my fry that are hiding in the plants/moss? Thanks in advance!

    They *might* try to go after them, but honestly if the fish are slow/dumb enough to get caught by them, then they probably weren't long for this world to begin with.

    I've wondered the opposite question recently. If I put shrimp in my growout if the baby bettas would eat the all of the baby shrimp. Probably, but I've never kept shrimp. I imagine the adults would fair ok.

    sadly.. they do. My girlfriend put ghost shrimp in my tank while I was at work one day because she felt bad they where in a feeder tank at the store... nasty s where grabbing my guppy's at night while they where resting...

    There was my excuse to get another tank at least...
