Fish compatible with CRS/CBS?

I'm about to flood my 60-f soon but gonna wait about 1-2 weeks before adding live shrimps of fish.

I kinda want this to be a display tank but also want my berried CRS/CBS to produce babies without them getting eaten. What type of fish would be safe for the shrimps?

I'm adding about 4 ottos for sure.

How about CPD? Something small that won't grow too big since the 60-f is only 8 gallons

Most fish, even CPDs, eat shrimplets.

Otos won't, and pygmy cories might not. That's about it, other than some pleco species that won't fit in an 8G.

CPD eats shrimp? nooooo!!! I love those fishes especially when in school.

Are all cory species safe from shrimps or just the pygmy cory?

I like the panda cory because they don't grow too large.

I love my panda cories! They *shouldnt* bother the shrimp at all, but don't hold me to it. At worst they'd only go for baby shrimplets but even then they seem to keep to themselves, and get scared of everything lol

pygmy cories are smaller than panda cories.
but even they're liable to eat shrimplets.

only safe fish are otos.
