I'm not going into details, but I got 3 ghost shrimp. I want to know if anybodys knows how to sex them. Also, do they breed (if you have a guy and a girl) and if so will they breed?

I got them for a total of 1.08. Each was .36. Also, will they breed cause I have 2 large ones and a small one.

I have heard they need many small animals to breed and usually dont in aquariums.

You would have to establish plenty of micro food. There usually bred in ponds.

You would have to get them plenty of food. But big breeders usually breed them in ponds. I would use RCS if you want to breed.

I dont know size for breeding. But you would need to establish pleny of micro organisms. I have read you can have a colony of RCS in a 10 gallon.
