Breeding Guppies/Ghost Shrimp/Mystery Snail?

I was wondering if it would be possible to breed Ghost Shrimp, Mystery Snails, and Guppies in the same ten gallon tank. I know some of the fry and eggs would not survive from the other eating them but as long as a few from each group would survive that would be good. I want them as feeders for my:

Dinosuar Bicher
Black Ghost Knife
African Cichlids
Crayfish
Guarami
Green Treefrog (May not feed him any)
Gray Treefrog (May not feed him any)

I would think so but a soon as you see the fry and eggs take them out. My only concern is that you might over stock the tank with the guppies because once the start breeding they don`t stop. You should have a breeder tank and a seperate tank so you can store them after the are born or else you will have serious over crowding. The gourami might not eat the guppies unless he is agressive and the shrimp, snails, and guppies are small.


Good Luck!!

Sorry if there is spelling and grammer mistakes above. I am not good with either.
If you have fish or plants you need to get rid of pm me I am always looking for more.
