No, bright colors in nature mean poisonous. So a RED cherry shrimp won't be eaten because the loach will assume it is toxic. Also RCS are too awesome to be nommed upon.
In all seriousness though, I am just saying they aren't the same thing. Maybe RCS can hide better(doubt it, bright red or transparent?) or swim faster. Either way, it is the pollers say!

LMAO you best tell my loaches, angels, livebearers, barbs, gouramis, etc that they arent meant to eat the excess red cherries i drop in their tank as feeders just because they are red :D
They will be nommed on no doubt if you put the cherries with loachesLots of tanks

Guys, ghost shrimp and Red Cherry Shrimp are not similar.
Ghost shrimp can grow to be 2" big. Red Cherry Shrimp are smaller.
Ghost shrimp are territorial and will not eat algae.
Red Cherry Shrimp are presumably not territorial and will eat algae.
They are hardly the same.

And RCS are more awesome.
@sailor : The poll is whether to put loaches or shrimp in my 166, not whether they would decimate them ;)

Well the ones at the shop are around 2" but I know they will get to 6"...
They have about 6 months to survive if they are in there.
Either way, you guys can keep arguing about ghost/RCS differences/similarities.
