Yes, they are community and plant friendly. Of course they are opportunistic and could catch vulnerable fish - young, old and sick - but healthy fish and shrimp will do just fine. In fact, you have to be concerned about the fish eating them, especially when they molt. You could try 2 in the 12 gallon, but would need to provide several hiding spots. The spots need to be small enough that the fish can't get in there, as they could kill them after they've shed their shells.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
