Freshwater Ghost Shrimp

The popularity of shrimp-keeping has been becoming more and more popular. Freshwater shrimp can be an amazing addition to any tank and can be very entertaining to watch them.

If you are just starting off in shrimp-keeping I would start off with Ghost Shrimp, also known as Glass Shrimp are excellent scavengers. They are inexpensive and efficient aquarium cleaners that will actively search for any kind of leftover food in your aquarium.

The Ghost Shrimp body is transparent, and an orange to yellow colored spot is visible in the center of the tail. The body is segmented, and features ten sets of legs. The first four sets have tiny claws that aid the shrimp in feeding. Ghost Shrimp are relatively small invertebrates, reaching a maximum size of only 2".

An established freshwater aquarium of at least 10 gallons with plenty of hiding places and a mature substrate are the ideal setup for the Ghost Shrimp. It should be housed with small peaceful fish that will not pose a threat of eating these shrimp.

The Ghost Shrimp are omnivores and will consume algae, detritus and left over food. If insufficient food is present, supplement with a quality flake food or pellet.
