    Hi, I currently have a 90g planted tank, non-co2 & EI dosing. I started off with 10 ghost shrimp last year & they have been breeding like crazy.

    I have finally been able to locate some Red cherry shrimp & would like to start breeding them (they cost about $5 each from private breeders & $35 from the LFS).

    My questions are:

    If I put them in my 90g tank will they interbreed with my ghost shrimp or do I need to use another tank?

    Can I safely assume that since the ghost shrimp are doing great, that my tank conditions will also suit the RCS?

    Cheers

    Hi, in my experience of having both these in the same tank, they do inter breed.

    The tank conditions should suit the RCS since the Ghost Shrimps are doing well.

    Only my opinion, could be wrong.

    Wow 35$ at your lfs? What town is that in? We should open up shop there! People here complain about fancy shrimp in the 5 to 8 $ range.
