Gregoryalln854 You notice the discus bothering them? What about larger shrimp, could those go with rams?

sbarbee54 Well Ottos are the only 100% safe. If you have a big community tank you could do well with Neos with all kinds of fish if you give them enough cover via plants and hidding spaces. I have a thrive group of PFR culls in a 55g community tank with a pair of GBR a shoal of 15 rummy nosed tetras and 4 small discus

What to put with Shrimp?

I'm starting a tank soon, and wanted to have shrimp. I've never done freshwater shrimp so I was wondering what goes with them? I would like to do rams, but have been told they would just eat them. any suggestions?
