Fishes
« on: June 26, 2010, 06:20:51 PM »

Hi!  I was researching ghost shrimp and I saw that "Compatibility
Juvenile shrimp can be kept in a general community aquarium, but as adults they may harass their tankmates and should be kept by themselves or with other large, tough fish."  Is this correct?  I was thinking I would get a ghost shrimp but I was also thinking I might get a lemon tetra, but they are small fish and I wouldn't want it to be bullied.

On another cite I just read "Suitable companions for ghost shrimps include small Livebearers, small Tetras, Rasboras, small Danios and other fish that are small enough not to eat the ghost shrimp. Avoid keeping them with very aggressive fish. "  Which is correct?  Huh

I personally do not know anything about ghost shrimp. Undecided
I would suggest you go to the sites you visited and see if you can post a question there regarding the compatability and needs of keeping ghost shrimp.

I would start with keeping the shrimp with smaller fish, because more aggressive fish would surely harass the shrimp and probably kill it/eat it. I think it'll be okay if you'd keep it with some little tetras and danios Smiley Which are quite hardy fish anyway Cheesy
