    I agree with AC. Heck, I was even surprised when my gren neons started eating my shrimp. Luckily Iwas able to rescue some and now they are prospering in a different tank with nano fish.

    Yeah, I had only one clown killifish in a 5g. They are very small fish (but awesome) and even when he was in the tank, I just couldn't get a nice shrimp colony going. He was for sure eating the shrimplets, I gave him to my LFS, and the shrimp flourished almost immediately.

    I think that's a good idea, moving the shrimp before adding a krib.
    would black neons be better than the embers? I'm very open when it comes to changing the upper/mid level shoal of fish or would it be better to just go with one strictly top dwelling fish like a African butterfly fish or 2 golden wondering killies.

    Dwarf pencil-ly killifish? Clown kilis are always at the top and fit your African theme.

    Sorry for another late response, but those fish aren't all that common in my area sadly. All though I could call up my LFS but as helpful as they are they can get a certain uncommon/rare fish in.

    You could keep a female kribensis with just about anything big enough to not fit in her mouth, and not too big or aggressive to stress her out our hurt her.

    Platies, or other live-bearers are most likely available in your area, and this fish can handle a higher pH. Again, I'm not saying a school of small/med sized tetras can't adapt either.

    Take a look at your LFS and see what your options are. I'm interested in what you choose though, so keep us updated :)

    I just have to let you know this:
    In a 20 gallon, your krib is going to look pretty big, and she mostly inhabits the bottom strata. She also takes at least 5 gallons of your bioload, so I don't know if two schools (one for the top, one for the bottom) of fish would work in your 20 gallon kribensis community.

    I don't see an issue with your original idea, minus the cory school. (Just my opinion and experience keeping kribs) And that's if she doesn't view the small tetras and rasporas as food. If you get her fairly young, and let her grow up with smaller fish, this will minimize the chances she will try to eat them when she's bigger ;)
