  1. Default Question about Ghost Shrimp fry


    0 Not allowed!
    I've done some reading on Ghost Shrimp and discovered they are many types under this common name. I bought 4 ghost shrimps for my 18g freshwater tank. Well 3 were pregnant. Some site said to raise the fry they need to be kept in saltwater. Wouldn't freshwater shrimp fry need freshwater?

    I've never been able to breed them in my freshwater tank, although they were mondo pregnant all the time. I don't believe they need brackish water, i just think the fishies are chomping down the eggs or babies before they can grow.

    Ive heard that all you need is a rubbermaid container and some ghost shrimp, and food, and in no time you have hundreds of them.
