Zebra Loaches & Cherry Shrimp

Anyone know if I would be able to keep Zebra Loaches in tank with Cherry Shrimp?


Thanks

I'm not speaking from experience just what I was told when I wanted to get them.
They get aggressive when they get older especially if you only get one, I was told they need to be in a group of at least 4-6.
Here's a link with better info.

Yes you can, but shrimp offspring won't make it.

The only loaches that haven't eaten my cherries are hillstream loaches. Anything else devours them with relish.

Misa's not worried....

They will absolutely eat them, especially as they get older and learn they are a tasty snack
