Shrimp?

Will different types of shrimp get along in the same tank???

I have two peppermints and was looking at possibly getting a fire shrimp, would these two be ok together?

Not sure what can/can't be mixed!

Well I didn't end up getting a fire shrimp, needed some help with some algae removal and went with a serious hand full of different snails and an algae Benny! Possibly next time I visit the lfs I'll pick one up! But these guys are eating up the algae.

When the algae runs dry can I supplement with seaweed?

Oh I see just throw me to the snails lol

actually they'll be ok as they will find something to eat between the glass and also the crevices on the rock thy should find small morsels of food

Lol, good to know ! Sry been battling different algae cycles, tanks only 5 months old. So far the worst was the cyano problem I had, but I defeated that beast!!!!! Now just have green hair, which they are mowing over!

Next visit will be be fire shrimp and possibly a mushroom coral to get my feet wet in that department!

Lots and lots of big water changes! And cut way back on feedings!

Water changes I did, well tried to do about 50%, and my feedings are now like every three days and and I alternate flake and the frozen food
