It's not a shrimp only tank, but the tetras and ottos don't seem to bother any of my RCS. When I first introduced shrimp into the new tank, I made sure to feed the fish a lot of flake food. Then I turned the lights off for 24+ hrs and I introduced the shrimp. I have a ton of baby shrimp in the tank, and my Tetras do not seem to eat them. I constantly see the baby shrimp growing bigger and bigger so everyone's got to get along.
This is my "mostly shrimp tank". It's got roughly 2 dozen fire reds, 5 AA-grade CRS, 1 amano, and in the way of fish, 6 celestial pearl danios, and 2 otos.
I had 3 super tiger shrimp, but they kamakazi'd their way to a dry and slow death on my carpet. I think the water was too acidic for there comfort, since I have that Netlea Lambo in there... Or, at least that's the only thing I've come up with to explain it.

It's because landlord doesn't want any aquarium inside the house. I have fitted styrofoam on 3 sides (left, right, and back wall) for temperature stability. And another wall and roof styrofoam because it was raining. $15 total.
Can't beat $300 a month rent!
Very interesting indeed but you can't watch them though $300 a month for your own room?

Yeah my own room, utilities, water, etc included. Sometimes they give me extra rice to eat. I do miss falling asleep by looking at my tank on the bed... but now I can enjoy a cup of coffee and a ciggarette while watching my shrimp feeding at night
Although I have to start worrying by the end of fall because temperature can reach 110F in the mid of summer.
