from what I've read it can be hit-or-miss. Some people report it works fine, but a lot of people say the ghost shrimp kill and eat the cherry shrimp.

Goes to 11!

Mine are fine YMMV

I have had 20+ RCS & about 6 or 10 Ghost shrimp [Not really sure lol] happily co-existing in a 6g tank for a month or so.

I usually check it out for a while before bed and haven't seen anything out of bounds yet

Before i had the ghost shrimp i had a lot of baby fishes and now i dont see more baby fishes so i belive they eat it .

First off this thread doesn't belong in the marine invertebrates forum. As for the ghost shrimp eating baby fish, it's definitely possible. I have seen a ghost shrimp catch a feeder guppy and eat it.
