Paulcm10 haha let me know if you get it out.
I'm just scared it will start eating my baby shrimps or adult shrimps.

wicca27 mine have never taken any kind of food other than veggies or algae waffers even when i smash snails or put brine shirmp in they dont mess with them just clean the glass and i think they like cooler temps too if i remember right so they would work well in shrimp tanks. now time to find a net and camp out infront of the 55 for a few hours lol

chunkychun it eats algae off glass and i occasionally give it some spinach or squash. no live stuff.

Paulcm10 i am reading somewhere that they require bloodworms and larval critters. is that true? =o

chunkychun yes they are safe with shrimp, my hillstream eats algae, and some pellets but doesn't bother my rcs

wicca27 i have hillstreams but not in a shirmp tank. they are an algae loach and i dont see how they could eat a shrimp really with them being flat like they are. i never can find them in the big tank when i want to move them to the shrimp tank but im thinking they would be ok.
