Ghost Shrimp?


Can fw ghost shrimp live in sw too? I was just wondering because I hear people feed them to sw fish but can they survive in sw.

It will depend on the actual species. Some may do fine, some may not. There are a lot of different species labeled as "Ghost Shrimp".

Yeah I think it depends on the species as well and determining that can be difficult.

But I think they can survive many different water types but at least one of the species require saltwater for the hatchlings to survive not the adults?
