  1. Default Help: Will my baby shrimp survive/or get eaten?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello forums! I recently got into shrimps and was wondering if my baby shrimps would be safe/wont get eaten from my fish.
    I have 4 Galaxy rasbora aka Celestial Pearl Danio in my 5.5 gallon shrimp tank. These guys are really small which was the reason why i got them. The max size these fish grow is 1 inch and are considered peaceful.

    Note: the little white things in the picture isnt baby shrimp, thats my co2

    As long as there are hiding places for the young ones, some will survive.
    Your moss (under the netting), will help to conceal the babies. All fish will eat what fits in their mouths so nothing is guaranteed. Keep in mind, hiding places.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    +1 Totally depends on the cover available, Going by that picture... My money is on a significant portion of them being snacks but there will likely be more of them in time.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Most my shrimps hide in the back of the tank inside the java moss behind the middle rock. i guess my shrimps should be fine then :)

    I've kept red cherry shrimp with cpd's before, never noticed any of the shrimp getting eaten. Cpd's very cool tiny fish, not too hard to breed, just wish they weren't so darn shy.

    Ah thats nice to know korith! I have more faith in my baby shrimps now lol. cpd are so beautiful for their tiny size. Mine dont seem shy at all. Maybe its probably because i dont have hiding spots for them.

    You are probably right, I had them in a planted tank, and the cpd's would just hide out most of the time. Only really came out in the open when it was feeding time.

    Possibly because they only take baby shrimp and it's over in a flash.

    Charlie's tank still has loads of growing in to do. At the moment any baby shrimp's survival chance is a few percent at best. This will improve over time as the tank grows in
