Are Ghost Shrimp similar to Black Widow Spiders?
Our Ghost Shrimp (Luffy) has a belly full of eggs. That's great, I thought. Then we went searching for the daddy (Zoro) only to find his headless corpse, and his head not too far away...
So the question is... Do female ghost shrimp eat the males after they mate? Or does she have to eat the male in order to become pregnant?
Also, will it be ok to let the neon tetras eat the spawn? Or should we separate Luffy for now?
How do we even care for Ghost Shrimp babies??
Thanks...Observer of: Shy Zoro the ghost shrimp, 13 neon tetras whom we cannot tell apart, one Gold Mystery Snail named Blaze (cuz he'd win any race), a delta tail blue betta male (Train), female betta (named Missy), a bristle nose Pleco (Play), as well as 3 cats, and a school of dogs.
