    I have GBRs in my 30 gal community with Colombian and serpae tetras and cory cats. No shrimp. I'd trade the shrimp for the GBR in a heartbeat. Stunning fish, constantly changing colors.
    30 g FW planted:corys, ABNP, blue angel, harleys, zebra danios, nerites & mystery snails
    15 g FW planted: crown tail betta, neons, snails
    90 g FW semi planted: Blood Parrots, severum, Jurupari, EBJD, congos, kribs, clown pleco, snails

    Here are two members of the Laetacara familey that would work in a tank that size.

    Thanks. The one on the right is Laetacara dorsigera I think. How are those guys around shrimp?

    Everything eats shrimp. Dwarfs are actually solid hunters even though they are small. Apisto's have huge mouths so they are out. Mine will even take an odd neon if its under an inch. All the other drawfs will demolish shrimp, except for possibly nannacara anomala or dicrossus.

    I can't think of a single exception to this rule.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Up until now I've only kept fish that are able to take the occasional careless shrimplet but that don't actively hunt for them.

    I'd rather ask than be sorry three days after purchase. Thanks for the help though, it's really appreciated.

    My conclusion is that in this tank with the current inhabitants any dwarf cichlid isn't a good idea. If I ever decide to rehome my shrimp I got some excellent suggestions here.

    found it funny to repeat this, but apistos DO have big mouths. lol. didn't realize that until i got my cockatoo. when he flared up-it was a sight to see. it was awesome.

    but good to you on the questions, rather than having obese cichlids. lol
