You can raise the young together...but, separate some when they grow.They will all try to moult at the same time, so they can be venerable equally, and no armor-clad crays dismember them.Also, don't feed them to much to fast, they can grow too fat to moult with a mass die off ensuing.If you can get something going you can have perpetual food for anything you could feed a cray to."
Wow Thanks for sharing! I have read that ghost shrimp are notorious for preying on other shrimp species while that species is molting. So it makes a lot of sense that the shrimp would get on a similar molt cycle. I have not kept multiple species together but I am curious if they would sync up cross species in the same tank.
