that is an amano shrimp, not a gohst. I had amano shrimp sold to me as ghosties too. Amanos are great, awsome algea cleaners.

This is a ghost shrimp.



nice shrimp. How much did you pay for it, because amanos run anywhere from 2-7 bucks, i paid 35 cents for my amanos.

Yeah, thanks. This shrimp was a donation from a friend who'd had enough of his tank. He's been in my posession for about 24 hours now so at least I know what I have now!

My ghosties dont get eayen, i ust find their littlew bodies everywhere. They turn bright pink after they die. I have had my amanos longer, and i think they are much better! I say they are hardier because they survived a gravel change and a ton of bacterial blooms when my ghosties seem to die if i have ammonia or nitirite spikes. I have only had very minor ones but the ghosties still die.
