ADFs and RC Shrimp?
Can you keep them together? I'm a month or two away from getting shrimp and wondered if a couple of ADFs would go in too. Happy to be shot down in flames with this as I don't buy before researching. Couldn't find a thread on this though.

The rcs will wind up as food.

Excellent. I will stick with my original plan then and only get the shrimp!
Thanks for the heads up. A lot of stuff online seems conflicting.

just to confuse you..... I've kept an ADF with RCS for about 2 years no issues at all!
Even more confusing as there is also a Betta in the tank! My other Betta's have always eaten cherries on sight!Used to try and keep track of my fish here.....
Ran out of room and time!!!
Instead I'll tell you the best piece of fishkeeping equipment ever....... Algae Scrubber :)

Yea id say its iffy and depends probably on temperament of frog and maybe a bit on size of shrimp. A few of my frogs have tried to eat baby fish or little 1/2" baby cories, and my one tried to eat another frog, but the 4 i have right now wouldnt hurt a fly (except for the one that tries to eat the other frogs occasionally when they get too close during feeding time).

Yeah I don't think I'll risk it. The tank is only 30 litres (6 gal?) so just the shrimp colony will be fine.
Now if I could just get this fishless cycle finished...gah.
