Will ghost shrimp get eaten by guppies and mollies?

Everything attacks ghostys.I am certain the mollys would take a stab at them.

Ghosties would get picked into oblivion - and some nice shrimp fry for a snack...

sorry

Never kept shrimp but I agree that the mollys will give it a go. They are big enough to fit shrimp (or shrimp pieces) in their mouths.

Honestly, it really depends on the fish and the cover you provide for the shrimp. I have a dozen or so ghosties in my 29g which has fish that "should" eat them. So far I've only lost a couple and the ghosties will actually fight with the rams and the gourami over food.

Depends. The best bet for keeping them alive is to keep them with herbivores, or omnivores who haven't been on diets with a lot of meat. What kind of fish are you planning to put them with?

Also; If these are the same Ghost shrimp you want to breed, there's no chance of that in an aquarium with fish.
