i have been thinking about getting some kind of shrimp for one of my tanks, just for something different, but i know nothing about them. so some of my questions may seem dumb....but i can't learn without asking!
1.) what are the benefits to shrimp in the tank?
2.) are they suseptible to the same diseases as the fish, and if so, do you treat them the same?
3.) what do they eat?
4.) are there certain fish that would not like a shrimp moving in and try to eat or hurt it, (or vice versa- are there shrimp who might aggress against my fish?)
5.) are they shoaling or can they be solo?
i have three aqauriums right now- do you think any of them would be able to house a shrimp, and if so, what kind?
30 gallon - 8 tiger barbs, three zebra danios, two roseline danios, and two honey gouramis
10 gallon - 6 harlequinns, one cherry barb, 3 pygmy cories
3 gallon -1 very active female betta
