Hello m...

I keep tanks of Livebearers and keep Corydoras (the little cats) too. Corydoras are very peaceful and are really the only species that don't bother the fry of other fish.

Just a suggestion.

My shrimp ate my fry when they were young... Between birth and 1/2"... Shrimp would dart up and snatch the fry... Horrible to watch... In my other tank the shrimp would grab the fry as they were being born like mom was a vending machine... :-/
Needless to say I don't have shrimp anymore!

With the corys... would they be ok with a few plecs... not fight for caves or borrows? I dont fancey the shrimp idea now. Lol I could always consider it when the fry get bigger, maybe.
