    I have a new 100L community freshwater tropical tank that i was hoping to include some red cherry shrimp when i start stocking it. I am unsure what fish i will put in it but i was thinking some combination of corydoras, peppermint bristlenose, kuhli/yoyo/dwarf loach, neon tetras, guppies, endler's livebearers, and/or glass catfish. Would any of these fish eat cherry red shrimp??

    I had a problem with guppies picking on my rcs when they were both in the tank together. Once a fish gets big enough to fit a shrimp in it's mouth, it could be an issue.
    Neons and shrimp go well together and I didn't have a problem with the small Cories.
    Remember to have lots of moss and hiding places for the shrimp.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    the loaches will most likely hunt down the RCS, almost all fish will infact eat some of your shrimp even the neons. but with plenty of hiding spots they should be able to maintain growth in the tank. just not explode lol

    Loaches love a shrimp and are excellent hunters
