Ghost Shrimp!!

What is the point of owning Ghost shrimp if all they are going to do is just eventually capture and eat/attack your fish I have a tank of Tetras and Guppies but they say they are no problem and Compatible of living in the same aquarium.

you don't have to keep them in a community tank,you could
have a ghost town all for themselves.
i like them and i am thinking of making a tank up especially,so i can get some.
i have never had a problem of the shrimp eating the fish,as they were always
kept well fed,if anything they would steal the catfish pellets and run off
into the undergrowth/decor.

welcome by the way

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Well maybe not flush them (talking about the shrimp) I will take them to a lake and dump them there useless in my tank I just thought I would check them out cause they are cheap and now I see why.

i think in my time of fish keeping i've been blessed and only had ICK once !
and it was with a new batch of clown loaches,it wiped out over half the tank.
i miss my big tank sometimes,even though many didn't like it.
