I'm thinking about getting a ghost shrimp, and I've done some research about them, but there are some things I haven't been able to find/want to double check. Firstly, has anyone had any luck in keeping them in soft, neutral water? Also, what is the minimum tank size for them? Would they be okay with a male Betta and 5 platies (If not he'll get his own tank). Are they better singly, in groups, or in pairs? Do they need a filter and a cycled tank, if the water they get is transferred from one that is already like that? How often should they be fed, and how much? Would they be okay decor-wise with some gravel on the bottom and some silk plants, or would something else be better?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
