Hi,
What small Tropical Fish Species can I add with my Red Cherry Shrimp?
At the moment I have 6 Platys and 6 Otos with 3 Guppy fry.
Thanks.

My guppies eat my red cherry shrimp not a lot but they do eat some, my tank is pretty well planted so I don't even notice a few shrimp here and there.

It depends, I used to keep guppies and platies with my RC's and I never noticed a decrease in the RC population. Even my opaline gourami pretty much leaves them alone, although that's definitely not the norm. Just be sure you have a lot of plants for the RC's to hide in, I have a lot of java moss and water sprite in with with mine.

Cories won't bother them even the little shrimplets. Kuhli loaches will mostly leave adult shrimp alone but will eat some shrimplets, neons and cherry barbs too.
