I decide to try some ghost shrimps with my goldies.

I know goldies might eat them but will the goldfish get injured while eating it?

How big do they grow and will they harm the fish in any way? :newfish

oh, shrimpies only get to about 1 inch, max. sometimes they preg girls will get a bit bigger/fatter but thats about it.

they wouldnt choke on them, once they get them in their mouths and feel em wiggling, they chew for a looooooooooong time :D

1. i doubt the goldfish would get injured.

2. my biggest one is 1.6inches.

can they pinch or bite?And do they have to be kept underwater?

1. they dont bite, but they do pinch to get food. ive kept them and havent seen them trying to pinch my guppy fry.

2. yes, underwater at all times.

do you have to get them as pairs or just one?

my comets are 4 inches will it be compatable?

what do you have to feed them?

well, they ususally sell them like 4 for a $1 so thats the easiest way to get em.

If your commets are 4 inches, then the shrimps will be food, unless you have tons and tons of hiding places.

as for food, they eat wahtever they find, sometiems in my tanks that have tons of them and that have babies, Ill drop in a few algae wafers for them, or a piece of sinking fish food.
