ghost shrimp & guppies
I'm totally new to aquariums and water gardening. My water garden started with just plants and some how my 3 year old talked me into getting fish, I got guppies. I had the first water garden at my campsite, in Jackson NJ. After returning from the week at home, I found we had fry...I took them home to my water garden at the house. Then I found myself very interested into these little guys. Well, it's all history now. Some how I found ghost shrimp and was told they are good algea eaters, so I bought them my water garden at home is filled with allgea well after doing more research I found they really aren't and they will eat my fry, I don't want that. They are just too cute. Now I'm in between a rock and a "shrimp" (ok I know it was corny). They will be arriving this week so I have to think of something fast. Any suggestions?

welcome to the forums. this thread might do a little better in the beginner section or the general section but my suggestion is to go out and by a second little tank for the fry to keep them isolated so they are safe

Unless you want to be totally overrun with fry, just leave them in the main tank and let the food chain work it out.Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.
