Amano Shrimp Question

Ok I've got 2 dwarf loaches, 4 zerbra dano's, and 4 oti's. I'm going to keep all the fish I get under 2".. I'm looking to also get either cherry or amano shrimp. Will these fish give them a problem? And is there a better of the two shrimp? Should I count each shrimp as a fish (pertaining to fishload) or not? Thanks

You may have some trouble with the Loaches and shrimp. They will likely make short work of them.

The Zebra Danios will likely eat any RCS shrimplets they can find; they will likely leave the adults alone. The Otos will leave all the shrimp alone.

How big is the tank?
I would not put the Loach in with the shrimp. I have had great luck with my cherry colony with Danio's, they lived peacefully in my 10 gal, and are thriving in my 36 gal. even to the point of over populating lol Give the baby shrimp a good sized area to hide until they are large enough to wander on their own, and you should not have any problems. (Java moss is probably the best hiding location you can give the shrimp)
