Default Ghost shrimp

Found a blue phantom pleco (L-128 I believe) and got it. LFS didn't realize that I got a straggler, a ghost shrimp. Wanted to know if the poor little thing would survive in my tank. I just don't know with the 3 larger denison's I have and more specifically the red eye tetra's.

LOL kinda what I figured, but I wasn't going to take it out and kill it, but I wasn't going to try and save it from my fish either.

What do you think will be it's demise, barbs or tetra's?

He is a ghost shrimp, so color is on his side, but he isn't completely invisible. He could survive, he could not. He'll be good for eating excess food though if he does survive. Good luck little fella.

Ghost shrimp has been hiding around the structures pretty well. Driftwood, fake plants, the quartz. Doing just fine. But, we'll see.

I can't agree more, let my fiance name it. Which has been stated before if she did I'd kill it. Of course a joke, but she doesn't know that LOL.

I'm wanting it to live, I think it's awesome. If it survives I'll be happy to add a few more.

Survives till when? He could survive for as long he's not eaten and is well fed.

Atleast a week before I even start to consider adding more.

Little shrimp is making it happen but probably being chased and nipped. It's 6 inches up one of my fake plants on a leaf eating lol

Sadly, someone has been nipping at my L-128 pleco too. It's tail fin is a little messed up this morning.

My two ghost shrimp were eaten by dwarf chain loaches that are 2" max... good luck though. Those guys are pretty tough; sometimes they would take food right out of my fish's mouths.

Ghost shrimp was swimming with my scissortails and denison's this morning.

Unfortunately, as I was doing a quick gravel vac for a 10-15% water change my L-128 went belly up. While taking water out and avoiding it, as it was upside down on my driftwood anyways. So there went 50 bucks and an awesome pleco.
