a single ghost? it gets lonely. you should add a little more if you are experimenting. fish/inverts tend to feel better in groups knowing they are always being preyed upon also you can view a relationship among eachother. id advise if you are going for CRS you should watch water quality. i prefer using RO mix with tap with CRS while cherries i prefer a good tap. as for feeding, id mix a couple things. some algae wafers one time, carnivore pellets sometimes, mixture, a blanched lettuce leaf here, blanched snow peas, just experiment with your foods and make sure it doesnt pollute the water.

As for Gwen up there, bamboos are usually filter fed, most efficient way. but if there is nothing to filter feed upon they will not waste energy filtering water but will start to search for food on the ground, this is when you know that your feedings for filter feeders are insufficient and you should find a good food source. do not let bamboo shrimps search for long as they will starve.

Thanks for the feedback on the Bamboo shrimp. I'm not as worried anymore about mine. He does fan and filter feed but not in direct way of the filter water, but rather from underneath a rock structure, that is on the path of the water flow. He has shed and is a very nice bright color, not the brown color when I bought him. He seems fine, I just wish he'd come out more, but perhaps someday.

Thumbs up

For the time being, shrimp are being post-poned.

Ended up with may too many black & chocolate kuhli loaches in the 15g tank (10), Also decided to take on switching my 29g from gravel and fake plants to sand and live plants...that is being done tomorrow night. So until I get aquascapes and stocking where I want it, I will then go back to the drawing board on the shrimp. Also did some more research, and when I set up my shrimp only tank, I will be doing cherry shrimp. And down the road will consider the ghosts for the 15g if I put the loaches in the 29g, just dont know if I want to add 10 loaches to 9 cories, thats a LOT of bottom dwellers.

Thanks everyone for all the advice, tips, and information!!! It is highly appreciated and will be drawed upon when the time comes!!!

depend which species of cories, some can be considered mid tank depending on your size of tank.
