Glass or Ghost Shrimp have solid transparent bodies and legs. They can be identified by the hump/bent on their back and sometime have brown marks or stripes on the side of their bodies. Glass or Ghost Shrimp are also part of the Neocaridina Family.
Glass or Ghost Shrimp: are shipped and sold as juvenile shrimp (1cm – 2cm). However, we sometimes we ship adult shrimp when they are available. Furthermore, we don’t allow you to choose a male to female ratio and as a result we send what is available.
Feeding Glass or Ghost Shrimp:
Firstly, we advise feeding Glass or Ghost Shrimp an all in one food like Shrimp King Complete. In addition to Shrimp King Complete, you can get some Bacter AE that you feed 2-3 times a week. In addition, GlasGarten – Mineral Junkie is a fantastic mineral supplement to feed once a week. On top of that, any shrimp snack or treat will work great. Secondly, if you have 80 or more shrimp in your tank, Shirakura – Ebi Dama is a great food that does spread with water movement, but rather stays in one peace as you feed.
As a result, a feeding dish is also recommended when feeding any food that breaks apart in the water.

For instance, if the shrimp has been in transit for:
- < 48 hours we recommend slowly acclimating shrimp with the “drip method”.
- 3+ days, we recommend floating the bag for 15 minutes. Subsequently, “pour” the shrimp into a fish net over a bucket. Therefore, you can catch all the shrimp in the net and let the water collect in the bucket. Further, you can add the shrimp to your tank.
