Our Pictures

This website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale. Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it grows and matures.

Click here to read more about our fish.

We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.

The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

Comments
Ghost Shrimp are lots of fun. They are transparent so you can see the food go through them. They have four "arms" with tiny pincher claws on the end, and they use all four of their arms simultaneously to pick up and eat bits of food from the gravel. Children love to watch them and think Ghost Shrimp are great.
 
Ghost Shrimp picture at AquariumFish.net, where you can shop online for Ghost Shrimps is fun.   This Ghost Shrimp
is like the ones we have for sale at our online store. Click here for more about buying Ghost Shrimp from us. Ghost Shrimp are good scavengers and eat small particles of food to help keep the water clean.

Molting
Every couple of months each Ghost Shrimp will shed its exoskeleton, so it can increase in size. Sometimes you'll see an old exoskeleton lying on the bottom the aquarium. When a Ghost Shrimp sheds its exoskeleton, its exposed body is very soft for a couple of days. During this period the Shrimp will prefer to hide under a rock or an ornament where it won't be eaten. So it's important to provide a safe hiding place for your Ghost Shrimp. Sometimes you can see a large female Ghost Shrimp over 1" long with the underside of her body covered with pink eggs.

Appropriate Home
Ghost Shrimp can live in fish bowls and aquariums with and without an aquarium heater at a temperature between 65 and 82 degrees F. Every few months a Ghost Shrimp molts its exoskeleton. When this happens, it's soft body is exposed, and it's vulnerable to being eaten. You can protect your Ghost Shrimp by putting a piece of a broken flower pot on the bottom of your Ghost Shrimp's home to form a small hiding place for the Shrimp.

Put the piece of the broken flower pot with it's inside facing down on the bottom of your Shrimp's home, so there is a small cave for your Shrimp to crawl under. If this cave is not big enough for the Shrimps, prop the piece of the flower pot up with a small rock or piece of gravel, or another piece of the broken flower pot. The idea is to give the Ghost Shrimp a hiding place that is too small for the other animals. So the Shrimp will be safe while it molts.

Of course you must always be sure that everything, such as a piece of a broken flower pot, that goes into your Ghost Shrimp's home, is clean and not contaminated. Click here to read more about how to avoid contaminating your aquarium.

 
 

Recommended Diet
Ghost Shrimp eat particles of food that they pick off the bottom and off of plants. They will also swim upside down and travel just under the surface of the water to eat food particles off the surface. Click here for more about feeding. I also feed my Ghost Shrimp a few live Black Worms every other day. Click here for more about feeding Black Worms.

 
 

Compatibility
Ghost Shrimp quarrel and spar with each other. It's fun to have a few, but when there are too many Ghost Shrimp, the bigger ones will make the smaller ones miserable. Put 3 or 4 in a large fish bowl, 6 to 8 in a ten gallon aquarium, and about one Ghost Shrimp per gallon in larger aquariums.
 
Good tank mates for Ghost Shrimp are the Small Tetras such as Neon Tetras, Glowlight Tetras, and Black Phantom Tetras, also Harlequin Rasboras, African Dwarf Frogs, Bettas, White Clouds, Fancy Guppies, Corydoras Catfish and other fish that are too small to eat the Ghost Shrimp.
