Question please help me with my tank..

so i decided to get back to my favorite hobby its been a long while since i have raised ghost shrimp i think i just need at least a 10g tank, java moss (for fry), a power filter with a strainer at the intake, a sponge filter, dark gravel (for stress relief), drift wood (for when they malt), oak leaves or almond leaves for nutrients, carnivore pellets and flake food to feed them, and a heater... am i missing anything? any input would be welcomed with open arms... i used to have a tank set for breeding shrimp but got into a accident that left me with having no time to take care of them and as such i have forgotten alot of what i used to know and now i have to relearn most everything i used to know...

welcome back to the hobby and its great to see another oklahoma person the 2nd in the last week i have talked with on here lol. why are you wanting to go ghost shrimp and not somthing more colorful? there are some great sellers on here that can ship and there are so many colors of "cherrys" now there is something for just about any one. neos are really easy and hardy. you have the basics of what you need. do you know any of your parameters?

ghost shrimp are not really sold on ebay or aquabid or craigslist... how many sellers do you see for rcs or crs or any of the others? plus i was able to get 35 ghosts for $10.00 im really starting back into my hobby with very lil cash im planning on selling my ghosts for a lil while and save a bit of cash after i find moss and some other things and my tank is better matured then ill invest into something a bit more popular or colorful and you said i love the colorful neo colored shrimps but theres so many sellers of neos and not so many of ghosts... i found 3 on ebay 2 out of the usa and 1 in the usa and they sell theirs for $1 a shrimp or well 10 shrimps for $9.99 ima sell mine for 12-15 shrimps for $9.99 hehehe im not thinking ill get rich selling ghost shrimps thats for sure but perhaps i can make back enough in profit to give me a leg up on better shrimps... think my plan will work?
