Cory doras and Ghost shrimp?
Are these two comparable? Their both bottom dwellers, i know, but will the shrimp harm the corys, and will the corys nip the ghosties?
Im just wondering! Cory cats are just so cute!
I would expect the corys to eat ghost and I've have ghosts in tanks that contained corys and they have all disappeared but I cant prove the corys ate them because I had other fish who I know ate them- I'll pass this one off to someone whos tried keeping them in a more controlled tank
I'll say this, I had a tank with corys, harlequin rasboras, and rummynose tetras and at times a German Blue Ram or two and I never noticed any missing ghost shrimp. I recently added a dwarf gourami to the tank at the same time I added about 15 ghost shrimp and they disappeared at least one a day til they were all gone. I'm 90% sure it was just the dwarf gourami, but there's always the off chance that it was the cory or any of the other fish.
I think they're ok together, but personally I feel like they're just ghost shrimp.. they are feeder shrimp, they are very cheap, and if they are eaten I don't care. I plan on adding some more ghost shrimp to my tank once I have some more plants in there and I won't be surprised if they only last a couple weeks, but then I'll just add some more later on. They're a good treat for your fish. I'd certainly recommend trying them out with the corys before you were to get any other shrimp like red cherries or anything. :)
I love ghosties, but any other shrimp is too risky for me. They are kind of expensive, and I'd rather just buy more cheap ones!
If I ever do get lucky enough to have cories, I'll have to try it!
Yeah, I highly doubt the shrimp could harm the Corys.. I did see the shrimp get pretty defensive of the shrimp pellets at feeding time.. the Corys would just push the shrimp aside though and munch on their pellets.
They are fine together, I have them both together in two of my tanks, no issues.
However, other fish can and will eat them. It's pretty much just a mater of if it can fit in their mouth or not.
