Last summer, I caught a few native grass shrimp, sometimes called glass shrimp. They're in kind of an ugly tank, but I've managed to keep them alive on cory wafers.
Does anybody else keep these? I'd appreciate tips on feeding, housing, breeding, etc.

I have ghost shrimp which some referred to as glass shrimp. I have them in a 30 gallon tank with guppies. I just feed them the fish food I give the guppies. Just make sure that some drops to the bottom for them.

just treat them like a fish, feeding a varied diet of different fish foods. do regular water changes and gravel cleaning.

in Australia they breed in winter and spring and the dark eggs are easily seen on the females. have lots of plants in the tank and they will breed happily.
