i LOVE my shrimp. they are so awesome. i want to get some red and blue rili shrimp. they are cool looking. there are so many different ones that are so awesome. i am hoping to eventually try my hand at many types

Can all these shrimp be housed together? I know that Ghost Shrimp will eat the Red Cherry Shrimp, how about the Rili Shrimp with the Cherry's?

never stop learning, as new things are discovered everyday.

Welll I ordered some of the Red Cherry Shrimp to add to the 5 I already have. HOpe they come very very soon. I was all excited yesterday because I got a package and thought it was the shrimp but it turned out my sister just put my name down for some baby stuff and it was that. Darn! Looking forward to my new Shrimp in the tank. Seeing only 5 in there with no fish is sort of boring. It is a 25 gallon tank and it only has the 5 shrimp and a few Assassin snails.

Be careful when housing shrimp together.

They won't KILL each other, but certain types can INTERBREED, nulling out their colors.

What you end up with is the NATURAL color of a dull brown shrimp.

This question has been answered 100's of times & there's even a spreadsheet type chart out there that covers the basic no-no mixes.

This is an old pic of my Cray, Dr. Cray. :3



He has since changed color, but I don't have a camera. XD (this was taken on my sister's cell several months ago)

I also have Tiger Snail in my large tank (El Tigre) and I have plans to add a few more different types.

I tried a black mystery snail with my Cray's tank... He killed and ate it within thirty minutes. XP (I was hoping it would just stay on the walls out of his reach. Nope.)

My Rosy Barbs are also a huge fan of snails. They tried to eat El Tigre when I first added him but gave up due to his size. However they do eat those little pest snails that I add to the tank. You guys, they are NOT food! :K
