iris I bought a pair of ghost shrimp for fun when I first started my tank. One came berried so I was even more excited -the green eggs just looked so cool! Anyway, the eggs hatched and both shrimps died shortly after. Fast forward a month and I found one lone ghost! It is now a 'teenager' and the odd one out amongst my RCS/PFRs.

Neatfish Here is a quick pic of some of the shrimp. I'm pretty sure I saw a small shrimp walking around he might of been in here a few weeks already but I never did see it and I know he is new because the others are very big already. I don't know where that snail came from but it's been in here a while now.

dougolasjr With freshwater ghost/glass shrimp the babies start off as free floating not miniture adults. I doubt they would be very good at hiding. I could be wrong tho.

Neatfish I have a moss they can hide in already.

inthepacific ive seen shrimp breed well with tetras and smaller fish but people say they might eat the babies. so id suggest getting a good moss cover for the babies to nest in

This is probably what will happen, but I have mine in a tank full of Endlers and there's always some juvies that make it. I also have a lot of moss growing in there so I'm sure that's the reason they can't all get picked off.

Neatfish Made my own sponge filter since I could not find one. What you think about this?

Because its ugly! Lol!

shloken38 Easier to find and even cheaper still (not that the sponge filter is expensive). Keeps the filter cleaner too.

Neatfish That's a good idea.

This would probably work.
