you have to remember that ghost shrimp have pinchers, and the algae eating shrimp don't. tried to mix them one time. the ghosts are very aggressive, and i guess territorial when it comes to other shrimp. was not pretty. but the ghosts can also defend themselves against the rams so their ability to survive is heightened. but i do have two cherries left in my 30 with the bolivians. you could always get the "extra large" amanos. bought some today that are as long as my thumb!!!! never saw them that big.
here is an idea. if you buy the rams and shrimp at the same time with both being introduced at the same time, maybe they are kinda on a even keel going in. also, make sure you get large shrimp and not so large rams. JMHO.
