    I agree with Slap; ghosts are incredibly hard to successfully breed. I used to have tons of them with many berried females, but I never was able to get a sustained population. Baby ghosts are just too vulnerable to predation from other animals (including their parents) and will usually starve unless fed properly...assuming not all babies are eaten right away.

    That first photo you shared is definitely a neocaridina shrimp. Many colonies of red cherry shrimp will remain transparent until they get to be full-sized, and I have had several colonies that stayed transparent in one tank even into adulthood but then became blood red as soon as they were introduced into a different tank.

    Ghost/glass shrimp are incredibly easy to identify based on their side profile. If you pull up some internet images of ghosts, you will notice that they have an extremely pronounced arch in the middle of their abdomen. Neo var. shrimp have a gently curving abdomen.

    Thanks I was so hoping they were red cherries. Been waiting a few months for them to start.

    Once they get going it will be hard for them to stop. Unless you limit their population by culling or have predatory tank mates, they will continue to multiply as long as you keep them fed and in a clean tank.

    No predatory tank mates. Just a mystery snail. Upon closer inspection there are too many to keep count of. Lol

    That's a good problem to have. Your LFS is likely to be interested, if you ever felt your tank contained too many in the future.

    Depends on the conditions/minerals/nutrients available to them, and genetics, I would guess

    I have to ask, what does it matter?
