No slow moving fish or long tailed... They leave my guppies, Molly, platy, swords, and otos alone but pick on my Cory cats. I keep ghost shrimps in the tank for him as well as pond snails. He is a happy little pig

The will eat your shrimp yes. As part of there diet has to be snails. Your killis might end up with their tails nipped
