    This is just a thought, i was thinking of getting some shrim and raising them in my planted tank and occasionally feed them to my cichlids for some live action . Would rainbowfish eat them since they are in the planted tank also? what do you guys think of that idea ?

    If they are the small kind, they sure will. My Rainbows act like Piranhas sometimes at feeding time!

    Mine would eat them. They eat live smaller worms that size. Maybe they leave bigger shrimp alone.

    i wouldnt mind them eating them i just wonder would they have time to multiply ? because i plan to add them to give my tank because i think they will look and when they get out of control set a trap and feed my cichlids every now and then. Or will they take them out as soon as i put them in the tank because i know they are good hiders
