ghost shrimp

I have two ghost shrimp, I think. One I can't find, but he is pretty small. My question is do they like to be in groups? I would really like to get some more , will this cause problems? I am also planning on getting more cory cats. Do they eat the shrimp? I haven't noticed my cory attacking the shrimp, but they hide all the time.

The cory shouldn't attack the shrimp. I am not sure how social shrimp are, but they seem to like eachothers company. Occassionally they will spar, but nothing serious.

Ghost shrimps are so cool. I have two of them, and can't wait till my tank cycles so that I can go out get some more! I'd definitely enjoy watching them spar! I think my two shrimps have figured out who's dominate already, as one always stay away from the other one.

I've had over 15 ghost shrimp in a ten gallon. They are good scavengers.

I have lots in my 20gal and their so funny! when they see a flake, they all run to it and go crazy. I guess they like big groups, mine are happy. Mine hide sometimes too, but when theres food......
