Curious...you said your shrimp died...did you figure out what may have caused that??
Either starvation or Carter killed them.

I got 4 ghost shrimp for my fry tank: a week or so later, at least 3 are still going strong. Quasar was too aggressive for them, which was partly why I pulled him when the fry were 2.5 weeks old. Sad, he was such a good dad for those 2.5 weeks. Anyway, I've tried ghost shrimp with bettas before, but the ones I got were small enough to become dinner. These guys are almost full grown, and haven't bothered my fry or the apple snails in there. LOL, they do enjoy a baby ramshorn for lunch every once in a while, which they are more than welcome to!

I have 3 ghost shrimp which are turning out to be great companions to Arthur. He followed them around when I first put them in but now could care less about them. I think I may be getting another 3 ghosts to add to the tank. The best part is they clean any alge in the tank for me! and they look super freaky

Ghost shrimps are also commonly infected by horsehair worms. being transparent you can see these worms when you look closely at an infected shrimp. please be aware of this when buying. although these worms only infect shrimp, it's always gross to see a shrimp die and a worm come out...
