    Default Would Tetras Eat Shrimp?

    A simple question:

    I'm planning a 10 gallon planted tank. I am thinking a school of tetras (or similar) and cherry shrimp. Would the tetras eat the shrimp?

    Thanks!

    Neons and/or cardinals? I'd say no. But then again, I know nothing on shrimp, so you'd have to ask a shrimp expert as well on this.

    Thanks for the quick replies!

    I'm not sure about the type of tetra yet. If they wouldn't eat the RCS that might play a role in my decision. I like cardinals...

    Nope, someone will have to see this thread. Wait a little while and someone should come and check out this thread very quickly. I do know they are on here, I just don't know who at the moment to actually PM.
