''jamaco'' shrimp

I bought two jamaco shrimp today i was in a rush and did not ask if they were peaceful but she said they were the small ones so i bought two for my 5 gallon tank. I was wondering If that is too many shrimp? Are they aggresive? will they bother my corry cat? How about my baby guppies?
To tell you the truth they scare me when i neted one it jumped!!

Oh ya i also bought frozen bloodworms for my fish. Is that good for them?
I plan on feeding them the bloodworms like 3 times a week.

I'm not familiar with Jamaco shrimp. Japanico (Caridina japonica) aka amano shrimp, yes. If this is what you meant, then bloodworms should be fine to feed on occassion. Make sure you feed it fish flakes as well. If it's not Japanico, could you post a picture of the shrimp?

I have 16 amano shrimp in my 90gal, and they are great! Also, I feed my danios frozen brine shrimp and frozen mosquito larvae and they LOVE it! Look up your fish and see if they are omnivores or not.

Amano shrimp are peaceful and are fine in your 5 gallon tank.

I guess he relly dident like my tank :(
