Amano Shrimp

I just bought two of these guys today,along with another clwon loach.The tank is heavily planted,so I wondered...would the other fish pick on the shrimp? My clown loaches are not very big right now and the other fish in the tank are small.


I had ghost shrimp before and never had problems and these guys are the same size as the ghosts.Any extra info you have on Amano shrimp is appreciated.I am probably going back to get a few more next week,as they are amusing li'l guys.

Congrats! Yeah, if your fish didn't bother the ghost shrimp than I wouldn't worry .

Sooo...turns out the shrimp I THOUGHT were eaten,are still in the tank.I found them during changing of the filters/waters! I was soooo happy! And I know where they like to hide.I was watching them last night and none of my fish pay any attention to the little guys!


I bought two more last night,so I have 4 now.I am planning on getting some more too,as well as cherry shrimps and a couple more species.
