This may or may not sound extremely dumb but here goes, do Ghost shrimp need oxygenated water?

Its not a stupid question.I would say yes, you need oxygenated water. Can they survive without oxygenated water, also yes, but until you are relatively experienced and know what you are doing, you wouldnt want them to die in an ammonia infested puddle. The shrimplet larvae will need to have oxygen though if you plan to breed. The mother will fan them, but they need the extra oxygen to hatch. What setup do you intend to put them in? Are you trying to breed them or just have them as a clean up crew?
