Question Ghost Shrimp

I am planning on getting a new community tank and I want to get some Ghost Shrimp with the other fish. What I see on the web everywhere is that they reproduce and reproduce. I don't mind if the shrimp do but I don't want a hundred little ghost shrimp running around my tank. So is there anyway to prevent reproducing so I don't get a bunch of ghost shrimp?

None that I can think of. Like livebearers, if you give them the right conditions, shrimp will lay eggs and reproduce over and over and over...

I decided to get 4 ghost shrimp in my 10 gallon, is there any pointers that I need to know to help take care of them? I have 2 moss balls and 4 Corys with them.
