To be honest, I missed the shrimp in that pic but after looking there's 2 I can make out.lol

It's a solitary species and tollerates no piranha tankmates.I plan on changing the tank around to accomodate him better.

Will serra species it's really difficult to keep them together.
Very nice looking tank, but the water bottle on the right side really detracts. What is its purpose? There's got to be a way to replace it with something less obvious.
That is something I dropped in for the CO2 with a powerhead attached , it works well but it looks like crap, I agree. I'm going to add something different soon.

It's not worth the trouble for him to chase them, I'm sure that given a chance he will snack on anything close but he's pretty happy with his thawed smelt, shrimp or tilapia fillets that he gets daily.
I don't feed live food to my fish other than earthworms and everyone in the tank loves them.
Thanks for the comments and help from everyone.
I've really grown to like the planted aspect of aquariums.
