Cherry Shrimp Tank w/ Rasboras?
I have a ten gallon tank that is used to breed cherry shrimp. Currently it has only cherry shrimps, a young red ramshorn snail, and a mystery snail. Plus two teeny weeny brownish/clearish shelled snails.
Anyways, my question is are there any fish that can safely be kept with BABY cherry shrimps? I have five micro rasboras (boraras maculatus) in a 20g that get a bit overshadowed by the guppies and betta. Could I keep these rasboras in the cherry tank?
Yes, you can.
And they won't try to eat the babies?
the majority of fish will eat baby shrimp, hence the reason we buy shrimp from the pet stores.
i was giving an example of what food we feed our fish = baby shrimp.
Ooh I see.
So does anyone know if Dwarf Rasboras (boraras macalatus) will eat baby Red Cherry Shrimp?
Yes LOL !
we buy frozen baby shrimp from the stores to feed to our fish, fish will eat pretty much anything that will fit in its mouth. Meaning a baby shrimp will fit in its mouth.
Are you sure? The rasboras are smaller than the adult shrimp.
EDIT: Actually never mind, I don't want to risk it. I think the 10 gallon will stay shrimp and snails only :)
Thanks for all your help stevenjohn21 and Lupin.
The risk is quite minimal with a heavily planted setup and boraras together.
