I would, but it seems silly to have another tank just for ghost shrimp. I mean, I don't like them THAT much. Part of why I liked them was because it made the tank feel more like a tiny ecosystem than just a Betta in a box of water.
Anyway, the only thing I have is a 2-2.5ish gallon tank ... which I guess would be large enough for them. Hmm. And it might look kind of nice in my bathroom... Still, it seems a little absurd to have a tank with nothing but ghost shrimp...
Are there any fish small enough to put in a 2.5 gallon tank that don't need to be kept in schools that would be too large for it? All I have for it is an undergravel filter for it, and I don't really want to buy a new filter just for a ghost shrimp tank. (It's kind of scuffed and scratched and acrylic anyway, so... yeah.) I also have a heater, and I'm not sure if the lighting works or not.
My only other option is that I might be setting up a 20 gallon for a quarantine tank, mostly for goldfish because I'm going to be aquring two or three more at different times over the next month or so.
Does anybody know the temperature tolerance for ghost shrimp? I doubt it's that high, though I do remember seeing some on Blue planet off a coast that didn't look TOO warm.
My quarantine tank for goldfish would be kept pretty cool...
Oh, yeah. Forgot to mention. I would probably be getting very small goldfish so they probably couldn't eat the shrimp. And even if they did, like I said earlier, I wouldn't be TOO upset to part with them.
