Torpedo barbs and cherry shrimps?

Are they compatible, or would the shrimps become overpriced meals?

The general rule of thumb is that if you want a breeding colony of shrimp, almost any fish will eat them - at least the babies. If you have a very well planted tank they may be able to hide.

Some people do add fish to their shrimp colony to keep the population in check.

100% the shrimp will get eaten. I actually feed my culls to my roseline barbs and they last for about 10 seconds
