i have a 55g with ramshorn snails, guppys, 2 vampire shrimp and a bn and now that my hornwort and everything else is all grown out i want a dwarf shrimp species to breed in my tank, i just wonder if one would do better than the other.
i know that not every ghost shrimp species can reproduce successfully in a fw tank, but there are species that do, and they would be cheaper than rcs, a definite bonus.
ive also read that they can aid in snail control, though my objective is not to completely eradicate, just to give me some extra help keeping numbers down. and ive also read they have been known to eat guppy fry if they can, which would be a good thing. if they can aid in keeping my poulations at least a little bit down, would they in effect be better for my tank than rcs?
im also wondering if ghost shrimp are better at competing for food against ramshorn snails than rcs are, as ive read the snails can be quite pushy when it comes to rcs. also would ghost shrimps do better at breeding in a tank with guppys than rcs?
