I had an outbreak of ich a while back and I had the temp raised on my tank and salt in the water. During that time I had a female ghost shrimp give birth. Now I have several 1/2 ghost shrimps in my tank. I have plenty of decaying plant matter due to my heavily planted tank and plenty of hiding places. So raising them can be done.

My mollys all survived but all the tetras didn't make it (28 of them). I'm right now concentrating on getting the plants back in shape. With the higher heat and salt in the water, my plants are now looking kinda ragged.
My tetras did not make it due to many posts that state to "add salt" but not how to add the salt So I dumped the salt in. Needless to say, the shock of the salt killed them all. Mollys like having a little salt in the water so they were happy as clams. So lesson learned the hard way - Add salt VERY SLOWLY - like over the course of several days.
