Water change and ghost shrimp

I'm wondering if ghost shrimps add a lot of hassle when you change the water. Because I feel like you have to scoop those little guys out

Uhm, not really. You do have to take them out because you could suck them up, but it isn't that bad.

Besides, owning them rewards you so much for that hard work!

Ghost shrimp will only breed in brackish water, so no worries there!

I never had a ghost shrimp getting sucked up during a water change. They always move away from the vacuum. Dont expect them to last long either cause bettas love to snack on them!
