I've been reading that they are classified under "long arm shrimp" and that they can snatch smaller fish and mutilate them. I have a handful in my tank and worried about my smaller bottom skippers (pair of scarlet badis) I pulled out my largest ghostie (2in and berried) and sliced her up and fed her to my koi (hey they're meant as feeders too) but I'm worried about my 2 one inchers. They've walked over my pleco which got irritated but no harm yet. Just wondering if my concern is valid or what?
