Ghost shrimp and guppies

Whatever you do DO NOT put ghost shrimp with guppies cause they will kill your guppies. I never had a problem with guppies dying or anything until I put ghost shrimp in with them and then my female guppies started dying. I went and spent alot of money on test and everything until I realized that it was my ghost shrimp killing them and I seen that for my own eyes. And then I took the shrimp out of my guppy tank and I even seen the shrimp attacking my angelfish also so I had to get them ones out of that tank also... So whatever you do DO NOT put the shrimp with and of your fish they will kill them.....

Do you have a pic of these Ghost shrimp?

Have you been feeding the Ghost shrimp?

What size tank do you have?

Is your tank cycled?

How long has it been running?

In my wine glass tank I have had fish living in there with a huge number of "Ghost" shrimp for a long time, couple years now.

They can grab weak, ill fish for sure.

Some varieties of "Ghost" shrimp can be Indian Whisker shrimp, long front legs, and they tend to be aggressive.

They have long front legs and me and my husband seen them getting a hold of my guppies and I told him that I needed to get them out of my fish tank. And I had some in with my angel fish also and the shrimp done the same thing so we got rid of the shrimp.

Good to know. I bet it was Indian Whisker shrimp! When small shrimp are sold, they often look pretty much the same.
