shrimp with fish

Am in the process of setting up a 135 gallon tank. (my lifelong dream). will be fresh water. Have never had shrimps. Can I have shrimp and fish in the same tank and if so what fish shrimp combinations should I avoid?
Thanks,Mogens

If you get big fish then they'll become snacks.

Honestly, all of those fish besides neons have the propensity to eat shrimp. Especially the loaches.

The loaches are definitely a no no with shrimp. Outside of that you could try it with the rest of them but you'd need a lot of cover and a large colony.

You can have bigger types of shrimp. Bamboo or Amano

If you are looking for a good shrimp alternative, you could add a Dwarf Mexican red lobster. It is actually a freshwater crayfish, but it stays pretty small - about an inch or two. They will be able to fend most fish off, as long as you give them somewhere to hide while they molt.
