What are the best fish for CRS?

Starting a CRS tank in about a month and just wondering what species of fish will work with CRS?

If you plan on breeding the shrimp then you cannot have any fish in the tank. Baby shrimp are pretty small and any fish should be able to fit them in their mouth. The only fish that would probably be safe is an ottocinclus.

Nope but I still do not keep them in my tanks. All my shrimp are safe from everything....no fish in my shrimp tanks.

I do not like the idea of Fish in with Shrimp.
