Can you see the Ghost Shrimp?

Hi I went to Petsmart today and got 4 of these guys and a turtle decoration that I thought would be cute to go in with Iris and so far so good they have been in there with her for about 4 hours and other than swimming down and touching what I would say noses with one she has not bothered them. She is pretty small and they are about an inch long so maybe she does not think they are food. I was not thrilled about shrimp at first because I thought they would be boring but they have surprised me. They are rarely still and when I look over and they are still they are all at the front of the tank looking out like they are looking at me. So any ways here is my attempt to get pics of the little guys and turtule for you.
First is tank with turtle:

and here they are if you can see them. LOL

Aw, I see them! Like you, I expected them to be pretty boring as well, but when my boyfriend put some in with his betta I was surprised at how interesting they really are.

Grats on the new additions to the tank :)

How far along are you Alex? I'm just about done mine, I could send you some of the water if you want. :P

But to get back on topic, I see 'em! And they are cute! Ghost Shrimp are really great little guys, I can't wait to add some myself. Don't underestimate them.

Well I came into the office this morning and 3 of them were dead. They had just recieved the shipment, they were still in the bag they were shipped in, so I think they were just to stressed out. I plan on takeing them back and getting replacements for them the one lone one looks lonely. LOL

I had 10 ghost shrimp... In fact they came with 2 baby fish in the bag too lol. All 10 shrimp are gone... They took off and I never saw them again. Then Id see 1 or 2... then none. Baby fish are still ok, turned out to be a male and female fancy guppy.
