Re: Ghost Shrimp

Ghost shrimp ARE brakish water.  It's a very common myth (especially in
pet shops) that they will live in 'freshwater'.  The iodine portion does
sound believable as that's one of the issues in keeping a saltwater tank.
In the wild you have a freshwater stream/lake/etc.. flowing downhill into
the ocean, eventually it will become brakish then salt.  More shrimp are
found in saltwater than in freshwater and brakish water.  Yamato, ghost,
glass, and alot of others can and often does prefer periods of freshwater
(usually when spawning am told) but eventually they will return to the
brakish areas.
