Any inverts for my SA cichlid tank?
I'm trying to have a biom tank for the amazon...right now it has sand substrate and 1 chocolate cichlid, 2 rotkeil severums, 1 firemouth, 1 mayan cichlid, 1 pictus cat, and 1 bronze cory(the rest of the cories were demolished overnight..why he survived...IDK).

Anyway...I would like to get some inverts for the tank...possibly some clams and shrimp...but i need to know what inverts(if any) are native to the amazon?

Thanks!!!(Nothing over 6 inches for crabs or crawfish or shrimp please....clams i'm fine with though)

BTW my name is Jonah...I think this is my first post but IDK.

Welcome to

I don't think there is a snail or shrimp that will survive your severums, mayan, uaru and firemouth. You'll never when the snails will be eaten. Shrimps though are absolute meals to them.

lol. I guess not.

Thanks for the welcome!! BTW chocolate cichlids and uaru cichlids aren't the same species. :)

It says moved on the title.....where was it moved to?
