It can be done from my recent experiments with a pair of macmasteri. You just won't see them much they know the apistos are aggressive. I put a few cherry culls in my 30 with them. There are also 6 rummynose, 5 Pygmy cories, 3 fat ottos and recently the past few months a bunch of appisto fry. The shrimp basically live in the blyxa. The females berried and there are shrimp now everywhere. They hide very well in my tank and the babies are getting big. I have lots of fissiden, subwassertang is stocked with baby shrimp and blyxa houses the adults. You definitely can't keep any prized shrimp in the tank.
