    Update:

    Last couple weeks I added about 30 ghost shrimp (Palaemonetes sp.) to the tank.
    Most of them are still alive! and boy, my tank is so clean ! (especially drift wood).

    16. Ghost shrimp (Palaemonetes sp.)

    Recommendation: 10/10 !
    For: Finally, some cleaning crews those won't get eaten lol. Also, they are dirt cheap in my area. All of those 30s for 1$!
    Not for: ... ... ... can't think of any... oh, of course unless it's obvious enough already, ANYthing you put into the tank might be a contagion, disease/parasite carrier. <-- I qt these guys for a month before adding to my tank.
    Note: I'm buying 30 more this weekend lol.
    Water change is not just a chore, it's my life now...

    I think another point to consider is the fact that ghost shrimp will not tolerate any medication e.g the use of praziquantel in case of deworming operation or PP procedure. my 2 cents worth.

    ghost shrimp will not breed in your freshwater tank as the larvae need a brackish environment.. If you have a sump on that tank Cherry Shrimp will breed like crazy in the sump, and will keep algae and uneaten food particles down.
