reticulated hillatream loach with shrimp

What do you guys think?

Safe or not safe?

Currently driving from Cali to Utah and picked up 3.

I know these guys have very tiny mouths, but will they be cool chilling with my shrimp, mainly the babies?

Just thought on asking. \m/ ^__^

Also picked up some Tigers for 2.99 each. It looks like I have two with the Orange Eyes o_O?
Not too sure how the color of the bodies should look, since I've only been keeping crystals and neos), but they got a tinge of blue in them?

Gotta look at them once I get them in the tank. To be 100% positive

On Monday I'm picking up a group of six of these to ogo into my 56g yank and combine with some danios. I think it will be pretty good.

That looks like the perfect natural environment for them!

Good luck!

Safe. I've kept three different kinds, including this one with RCS and they have been just fine. They just glide around the tank.

im about to give it a shot myself i have a spotted and a retic in my 55 and was thinking about tossing one into a 5 gal with some rili shrimp. since they seem to be algae eaters i dont think they will harm the shirmp but might do a number on the biofilm. so might have to feed the shrimp more often.

As others have mentioned, what an amazing fish. Beyond stunning.

Even if they do snatch up a few shrimplets here or there, it'll be worth it just to have them.

Post photos once you get them in their new home!
