Tetras attack shrimplets fast and furious, the safest will be ottos. I do have a video of my baby ottos on my blog,

Snails and planarian:
For shrimp tanks, overfeeding ia always the problem. Then will come planairan. These are the ugliest pest in an aquarium. And if u cut them, they become 2 pests! Its very troublesome as there are no fishes to consume them and if the overfeeding continues, you don't want to know what will happen.

For more shrimp related issues, do give mu blog a visit for more updates.
