Cherry Shrimp and Mosquito Fish?
I have a tank inhabited by 6 Cherry Shrimps (about 3 females and 3 males), 2 Rabbit Snails (plus a micro baby that just hatched), and 2 Mosquito fish (and some of their recent fry). One of my females is getting ready for her eggs to hatch and has receded into a dark corner by my filter. Although the mosquito fish are non-aggressive and don't bother my shrimp, they have eaten dead shrimp and even their own fry. With the eggs of my female shrimp preparing to hatch, I'm afraid my mosquito fish will eat the fry of my shrimp. My tank has many places to hide and is well supplied with steady algae growth and high protein substances, so the fry shouldn't have trouble surviving if the mosquito fish will not eat them.
