I have my ghosts in a separate tank from my rcs, but I have seen my ghosts perch on a branch and grab unsuspecting guppy fry. Fast little buggers.

Really? Well that's another bummer for me cuz if I have to move them the only place they could go is the guppy fry tank its funny u say that cuz when I feed they perch on the scape with their arms up ready to catch food! I have seen them grab a shrimp pellet out if mid air! Well, water lol. Very entertaining creatures

I've heard it's hit or miss with ghost shrimp on if they'll attack babies, maybe you have the ones that don't, won't know till you see for yourself though. For me it's always miss, got rid of one batch only to have the 2nd batch even worse lol.
