What size tank do you have and how many of each species of fish?

cherry shrimp in comm tank

Hi. I've got a 65g community tank with a lot of different tetras and a huge colony of RCS. The trick is to give the shrimp a lot of cover, I have found moss to be the best hiding place for the baby shrimp. I have no doubt that many babies are eaten but the fish take absolutely no notice of the juveniles and adults.

As you can see, they live quite happily together, given enough plants.

OK, sounds good. +1 ScotJudd comment, give plenty of hiding places and you should be good to go.

These cardinals were in my QT FOR 6 weeks. I keep my overflow of RCS in the QT. The fish get into very good condition on the babies but still the numbers of shrimp increases.

Black skirt tetras and zebra danios will probably make moves on the rcs.
