My Ghost Shrimp are "Shy"
A week ago I got 4 ghost shrimp for my 29 gallon community tank. I heard they made good cleaners and were fairly active (move around the tank a lot).
It's been a week and my shrimp just sit under plants all day. The tanks light isn't on but there is some sunlight so I don't know if they still think that it's night and they should sleep.
The other fish in the tank are:
2 neon tetras
2 orange-finned tetras
4 black tetras
1 zebra danio
1 bristlenose (i think) pleco
Should I keep the light on more? Should I just wait longer?
