Ghost Shrimp!!
 
What is the point of owning Ghost shrimp if all they are going to do is just eventually capture and eat/attack your fish I have a tank of Tetras and Guppies but they say they are no problem and Compatible of living in the same aquarium.

you don't have to keep them in a community tank,you could
have a ghost town all for themselves.
i like them and i am thinking of making a tank up especially,so i can get some.
i have never had a problem of the shrimp eating the fish,as they were always
kept well fed,if anything they would steal the catfish pellets and run off
into the undergrowth/decor.

welcome by the way:-D

Yeah, I keep my fish and Shrimps well fed I plan on flushing them down the toilet tomorrow its only a 30 cent loss. : ) Loaches are Legit! by the way what kind of fish do you have?

willow 07-21-2013 04:18 AM

what are you going to flush down the toilet :-( ? ?

sleeper69 07-21-2013 04:21 AM

Well maybe not flush them (talking about the shrimp) I will take them to a lake and dump them there useless in my tank I just thought I would check them out cause they are cheap and now I see why.

what a shame we're so far apart,i'd have taken them for you :-D

gold fish in the garden pond is all at the moment.
i did have a 4ft tank and changed fish over time,community one time
then cichlids another.
now i have a small tank in the kitchen which i am going to house shrimp.
i wanted guppies however i can't keep them a live for more than a week
so i have given up trying.

yeah gotta becarful when buying fish alot of these pet stores don't maintain there tanks like you think and these fish are affected with ICK and it spreads from there tank to yours and pretty much gotta start all over it sucks

willow 07-21-2013 04:49 AM

i think in my time of fish keeping i've been blessed and only had ICK once !
and it was with a new batch of clown loaches,it wiped out over half the tank.
i miss my big tank sometimes,even though many didn't like it.
