    Are Ghost Shrimp finicky with water quality? Twice now I've bought shrimp and added them to a well-established tank and they never lasted long. I'd love to put shrimp in my 55 gallon (RCS perhaps) but I'm afraid to if it's an issue with all shrimp

    Ghost or grass shrimp usually don't get the best care before you get them, they're often just sold as feeders, so they're not taken very good care of

    Well that's good to know.

    I saw an ad on craigslist that someone locally is selling red cherry shrimp for a buck each. Perhaps I'll take a chance.

    RCS are pretty hardy, start with 12 or 15 so you get a few good breeding pairs

    excellent advice from one who knows

    Just figure out the rest of your stocking list for the tank. You don't want the RCS to become an expensive snack.

    I think Amano and Bamboo shrimp would work? And there's always shrimp tubes which shouldn't be that difficult to make...

    I wouldn't add Bamboos to an immature tank.

    They shouldn't be able to since their mouths are on the small side
