Ghost Shrimp

We are adding ghost shrimp to our 55 gallon tank. How many should we add? Our stock is currently:
3 platties
5 black skirt tetras
4 albino Cory
3 dwarf gourami
15 ghost shrimp

We are thinking we need more ghost shrimp and a few other fish...any suggestions?

Ghost shrimp have a small bio-load and are great cleaner-uppers. I personally would add more shrimp and no fish.

I have tons of ghosts in my tanks.

I would add more tetras and corys. They would be more fun in larger groups.

Would it matter if we added cry's other than albino? You mention more tetra's...would you do black skirt tetras or just more tetras in general?
We will definitely be adding more shrimp, just don't want to over do it

+1. the larger the group, the more they show off their natural behavior.
