Kill em off? the shrimp? what do you mean?


I think a killi fish tank would be great, i heard they are not that
hard to breed, but the eggs do take a while to hatch.

Just let the fish eat the shrimps.
The fact that the shrimps are dying might indicate a problem with your tank.

I have found killifish very undemanding and easy to breed. Big plus is that you can kept them in small tanks and do not need a heater. I breed F. G. N'sukka killifish and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have about them.

Agreed. You should find out why the shrimp are dying first. The source of the problem may affect the fish that you add later.

How often do you do water changes and when did you do one last?
