Rcs

I have a sorority already going in my 15 gallon NPT. There are currently 4 girls, and 6 ghost shrimp all living fine. I have some RCS getting shipped to my house, but the 5 gallon tank that I want them to go in will be getting redone sometime soon hopefully, so I don't want to put the shrimp in there until I am done with the tank. So are cherry shrimp fine to put in with the ghost shrimp? Of will they just get bullied? I can put them in the 5 gallon if it doesn't work.

I would suggest quarantining them before adding them to the sorority tank. It may be risky adding the RCS with ghost shrimp. The ghost shrimp tend to think they are snacks rather than tank mates. It may work with a lot of spots for them to hide but then again you might just end up with a dead cherry in your tank where you can't see it. I'd suggest ultimately just using them in the 5 gallon.

Alright that's fine then, once one of my girls heels up I could have them in the 2.5 gallon, when I redo the 5 gallon.

I wouldn't add them in with the ghosties because the ghosties are bigger and i think they have claws. :/

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
