Don't put them in there while the tank is cycling. U may know that. Also the shrimp might eat the fry

Baby shrimp or small shrimp. If there mouth is big enough for them to eat the fry they will.

Bamboo shrimp are filter feeders right?

I can't see em eating fry

I've never bred swordtails myself but my bro has about 20 of em growing out in a10 gal right now. He's keepin it at 78 degrees. They are about 3 weeks old now. No deaths that I'm aware of
