    I have 15 tiger bars and 10 zebra tetra's 2 bristlenose pleco's one molly and one guppy in a 60 gallon tank. Anyone know if i could put a bamboo shrimp in my tank? I am afraid the barbs will mess with him. I put ghost shrimp in the tank sometimes for the barbs to play with but thats not even close to the same thing. Anyone know anything about these really kool looking shrimp?

    It's an Asian filterfeeder. Needs a mature tank, flow and some shelter.
    3 potted plants and 6 strings of plastic do not make a planted tank!

    Rather likely. Especially since you've given them other shrimp "to play with"

    The only bamboo shrimp I've seen are rather large & different coloring than ghosts - at least a few inches (3-4") long each. I doubt the barbs would go near one. I added 4 amano shrimp to my tank and my fish totally leave them alone.
