There are two different types of ghost shrimp. One have claws (macrobrachium), and the other dont (palaeomonetes). The one with claws do attack. I dug up an old thread that is full of info.

Ghost shrimp are sensitive to tank chemistry and should be housed in cycled tanks. I plan on setting up a shrimp tank next summer and was doing some research today :) If you have a cycled tank you could shake the filter into the tank they are in. 20-40% water change once a week is what I am reading.
