I have quite a few red cherry shrimp in my 45 gallon community fish tank for about 2 years now. Last week while purchasing some harlequin rasboras at the LFS they accidentally scooped up 3 large ghost shrimp (also called glass shrimp). They are probably about one inch long and they said that they co-exist peacefully with red cherry shrimp even through RC shrimp are half the size. After letting them loose in my tank, I started reading on the Internet and have read good and bad about mixing the two. However, some people have called certain crayfish "ghost shrimp" so I may not be reading the correct information.
One of the ghost shrimp is carrying eggs under her tail so I will soon have more ghost shrimp. I don't want to destroy my planted tank trying to catch them if I don't have to. So far I haven't noticed the ghost shrimp harrassing the RC shrimp.
Should I be concerned or will the two get along just fine? I should have asked this before I dumped them in the tank.
