Ghost Shrimp Colony?
I have 1 ghost shrimp in my heavily planted 10g amazon QT. I am wondering if I can add a colony of between 10-20 without many problems. I am going out of town tomorrow, and the walmart we are stopping at (somewhat unfortunately) has fish. I can get the Ghost Shrimp for 33 cents a piece.
I heard somewhere that GS are cannibalistic, but I have heard others say they aren't (neither were on this forum, just GS care guides). Does anyone know if a colony between 10-20 would work Ok for a 10g tank? I am not going to risk smaller shrimp with my tetras. Lemons are fine with GS as far as I can tell, but hopefully I'll be getting some Black Widow Tetras some time this year. I guess I'll see how that goes when I get there, but $7 max for an impressive colony, even if it doesn't last (not that I would get an animal I knew would die), is a small price to pay.
