Ghost shrimp meet 5 gallon
How many ghost shrimp will live happily in a 5 gallon hex tank?

Im not sure but if its just them, and you have enough plants and such Im sure you could put 10-15. They don take much room.

their bio-load is tiny. I'd say get around 6-8. They will breed eventually so i would recommend not getting too many to start. The max a 5 gallon hex would hold 15 max. But then again it still depends on your filtration and surface area and surface agitation.

I've heard they have aggression issues towards their own kind in small spaces, anyone know?

yes, they do, but they don't really harm each other. Just start removing them when they start to overpopulate
