Amano + Cherry?


I've got a 5 gallon hex that houses a pair of amano shrimp that were removed from more aggressive fish. If i wanted to add a few RCS, would that be okay?

I have an amano with a bunch of cherries and he walks all over everybody but it seems fine.

I keep them together no real troubles. Amanos are more dominate at the feeding site. That's life in the food chain I and I do not feel that is a problem.

I also keep these two species together. The amanos will always outcompete the others when feeding so feed accordingly.

i have them together no problem... my cherry babies like to RIDE the amano and while he won't share food with the newborns that are red she shares with the clear colored newborns no problem (and my snowballs too, when they were in the tank).
