Ghost shrimp creep me out, lol. They look too insect-like and also I occasionally eat shrimp......
In one of our tanks we had a couple of these tiny crabs - they were red. They were fun to watch, except sometimes they would go down the UG filter pipe. We would tie a piece of raw liver to a string and dangle it down in the pipe, in essence "fishing" for them. They would grab on, eat the liver, and we could get them out of the pipe. I have no idea how we came to use liver
One day we couldn't find one - not in the pipes, not under rocks, etc. Nowhere to be found. We were living in a little apt. that was a "mother-in-law's" quarters split into two apts. It was an old adobe with Mexican tile floor in the living room/kitchen - one big room. The entry was a set of glass french doors. We had several large plants sitting on the floor by one side of the doors. I was washing the floor one day and moved the potted plants aside and lo and behold, there was the poor little crab, dead of course, but that little guy climbed out of a 55 gallon tank and walked across the room about 14 feet. It was very sad, sniff.
