I was looking for new ideas for stocking my 75g tank on youtube and came across a few sexy shrimp vids.. And thought it would be cool to add one since they looked so pretty and funny dance
So anyways drove to my LFS
and asked them if they had some in stock and she had 2 of them left ,but they were super super small and i specificly asked the LFS
girl Wont they get eaten by my fish ? She says nah its fine as long as u drop him on either an anemone or a frog spawn or a torch he will be fine and use the coral as a home/protection
Since i got no anemone i decided to drop him on my yellow torch after acclimating him he decided to stay on the torch for first 5 minutes and was fine.. The second he decided to leave the torch for not even a split second he got eaten by my cardinalfish
Is it common for sexy shrimp to get eaten by fish?
Is there a way or a trick to keep them alive ?
Thanks for any input
