Could not agree more. Put the shrimp in something else. I'd reckon I've raised 5,000+ Kribensis fry of different types and far more shrimp. Just saying that to not come across as a guy on the internet saying they aren't a good pairing who doesn't have experience on each and is just parroting things read on the internet. These are two aquatic fauna I've spent many years propagating and they aren't a good pairing in the same tank -unless the purpose of shrimp is as feeders. As cichlids go, there are no choices that won't eat near adult sized shrimp except for Microgeophagus and so forth which require far higher temperatures than shrimp require anyway.
Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
