Looks like b.s. to me. Other than "all-natural" they never say what the hell it is.

I keep mine in a 75gal with barbs, yo-yo loaches and various gobies. Good mix on the aggression and the tank has many hiding places. I wouldn't try it with the smaller peaceful tetras though...

My experience is that they are not predatory at all. I've kept them with cardinal & rummynose tetras without an issue.

And the best part is I didn't add the shrimp on purpose, they just hitchhiked on plant clipping I was feeding the Koi.
