Awww, I mis-read the title of the thread and thought that you were showing us pictures of a new Sulawesi species that was a golden yellow color. Oh well...the pictures of your Yellow shrimp are very nice!

In general, the answer is no. Most fish will see the shrimps as food, and even if the adults are large enough to survive (which might be the case with a betta), certainly any baby shrimplets will be mercilessly eaten. Furthermore, the activity & antics that make shrimp so enjoyable in a tank will be highly restricted if they are in a tank with fish, as they will spend a lot of their time simply hiding. Whereas in a shrimp-only tank, you will see them crawling on everything, picking at everything, swimming around in the water, etc. Much more enjoyable.

If you want to have fish and also enjoy shrimp, then something like an amano shrimp (which can get more than twice as long as other dwarf shrimp species) is a better choice. A 2" or 2.5" amano shrimp is much less likely to end up as fish food in a community tank than a 1" Red Cherry or Yellow (or whatever) shrimp.

Ohh i see! I wont risk it then, ill pick fish or shrimps! One more question, do shrimps fight or can you have all different types and colours in the same tank?
