I already have ghosties too. The ones I have now have been living with him for months and he hasn't eaten them. I wanted to try a different species that would breed, so I'm pretty sure I'm going with the cherry shrimp.


And I don't have room for a bigger tank, so no froggie friends unfortunately. He has his own 15 gal though, so it's an OK size for one ACF, but not quite big enough for 2.

I haven't personally kept Whisker Shrimp but from what I've heard they can be pretty aggressive. I know that they're rather predatory and will eat smaller shrimp. You might want to avoid them.

That is, if we're thinking of the same shrimp .

Yeah, I googled them and I think I'll stick with the smaller shrimp! I now understand why it was in its own tank LOL.
