jileha Great. They're neos.
Chances are probably rather slim, but who knows!?

wicca27 i would say it depends on the type of shrimp. neo's probably not. tiger shrimp would be more likely to eat eggs. my oebt would eat baby rams horn snails and wanted way more protein than my neo's and crs.

Kitsune_Gem Your fish are more likely to eat the eggs then the shrimp. People keep shrimp in with their cory cat eggs to keep them clean and fungus free.

Do shrimp eat fish eggs?

Usually we're more concerned for the shrimps' offspring than that of fish, but...

Last night, I observed what very much looked like some kind of mating dance from one of my chilli rasboras.

What if they should lay some eggs? Would the shrimp eat them? Would they be able to locate them as they do with other food, or would they only eat them if they'd stumbled upon them? Provided the fish haven't eaten them all before already...
