    Hi everyone, I have a planted 6 gallon fluval edge with 3 inhabitants - 1 neon, 1 ghost shrimp, and 1 zebra snail. I have been neglecting my nerite snail's shell for as long as I've had her (about 5 years) and it's to the point that I think her shell may break in half. Please look at the...

    Pregnant ghost shrimp

    i just got a few more ghost shrimp for my 10 gallon tank which also contains a gourami, a Cory catfish, and a Betta fish. I go to put the shrimp in my tank and I see one has lots of little specs inside of it. It turns out it is pregnant! What do I do to help it give birth and help the babies grow?

    Over Population Of Ghost Shrimp

    I have a 30 gal tank with mostly Platy's, Guppies, and Mollies.  I added four ghost shrimp six months ago and now the tank is overwhelmed with them.  Is there a natural way to control the population?

    Should I Get Ghost Shrimp?

    Hi! I was wondering if you think ghost shrimp are good tank mates.  If you could tell me your experience with them or ones you have heard about that would be awesome!
