Could I...

I was wondering if I could get some shrimp for my heavily planted 10g, I'm not to worried about about the fish bothering them { 3 Nannostomus eques and my pair of Clown killis} but my CPO has me worried. She has gotten very good at hunting and eating my snails, and I've read that they will eat full grown shrimp! I don't mind if she eat the babies, since I'm not looking to breed them, and the shrimplets would most likely be given back to the LFS anyway.

Thanks for any help you can give!

If they can catch them they'll eat them. And they sneak up behind them...I have quite a few tailless shrimp in with my CPOs.

oh well, I guess I'll just let her be the only invert. in the tank. I don't want the shrimps to be injured in anyway.
