So are you asking if it's OK to add them? Should be fine. Ghost shrimp are more likely to not be eaten as they are clear, and they are quite large. But angelfish are generally notorious shrimp eaters.
+1 but if they were to survive I'd say the angel poses the greatest threat, could even pose a threat to platies and other fish when grown up.The thing I find with the ghosties, at least at my LFS is they don't last long. They are usually over packed when shipped, kept in basic tanks. They're meant for feeders, so lifespan isn't a concern and with how cheap they are, most LFS's don't put a lot of effort into keeping them alive long. Buy lots, some will survive, then buy more and repeat until you have some that made it. lol.
Dumb question, but why?Just make sure they are actually ghost shrimp and not a macrobrachium species that's been mislabeled. If they've got long arms, don't buy them.
Dumb question, but why?
I just bought out my LFS supply hoping to get a breeding colony going and I noticed a big difference in how some of them look, including longer pincer arms. Do I need to sort them out?
Macrobrachium are fun shrimp to keep and beautiful, but they need a species tank. They're incredibly aggressive when they get to full size and will eat anything they can get their claws on. They're able to take out fish (particularly long finned fish), shrimp, snails, and other macro shrimp.Why not Macrobrachium. Is it aggresive?
