shrimps #1

Thanks Ken

Re: shrimps #2
nope, sorry they wont be ok with your fish, or any fish! any shrimp that has 'clawed' in its name, not good with fish!

Re: shrimps #4
unclawed. Specifically Amano Shrimp and Rock Shrimp are pretty easy to find and generally do well in an established suitable community tank.

Re: shrimps #7
there fine just make sure you have plenty of algae for them to eat or algae wafers be cerfull of putting them in acidic water as this can be harmful to them
