    I am considering getting some of these guys.Ive had them before in a non planted too cold tank and they actually lived for a few months.They also did not have any threats in that tank.The tank I would like to put them in is a heavily planted 58 gal with a large angel a big bala shark and a whole bunch of diamond and glo lite tetra as well as a large group of cory and 2 raph cats.My water specs are
    ph 6.8
    nitrate 3-5
    nitite and ammo 0 of course
    semi hard water.
    So,with the above info what do you all think of the above mentioned shrimps chances of doing well in my tank.As usual,experienced advice is most welcome!

    Bamboo shrimp are very timid, and do not seem happy with any large or active fish. Heavily planted is a definite plus, and will help them feel more secure, but I'm still rather worried about your Bala.
    Why would you eat bad ice cream?

    I would not do it. They are too expensive to end up as a bala or raphael snack.
