View Full Version : Killifish & Shrimp?

05-19-2011, 03:08 AM
I was wondering if I could keep killifish with my shrimp Blueberry Shrimp and Rhino Shrimp in my 40 litre tank. Would the killies eat them or would it be okay?

Thank everyone who responded.

As a note, my new Blueberry shrimp died (http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aquariumforum/showthread.php?p=890062#post890062), so now all I have are my roughly centimetre long Rhino shrimp. I read that some killies will eat small shrimp but I was wondering if I could keep either some Nothobranchius foerschi or some N. guentheri with my Rhinos or would they eat them?

Many thanks everyone for your help!

killies will eat whatever they can stuff in their gobs...I wouldn't recommend it...

I will save my killies for my paludarium project then.

Thank you sheamurai for your advice!

Yeah, thats a big no. Expensive feeders, i use ghost shrimp to sometimes trigger my killies to breed.
