Actually ghost shrimp are full freshwater, larvea and all. No brackish needed! I would get 5-6 in a 14 gallon. I feed mine everyday, or else they become much more cannabalistic.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Thank you for your guys' input! I did not end up getting them at the pet store I went to last friday, because I did not know they were senstive. Later on I may get some, once my tanks are cycled :) Good to know how often to feed them!

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!
