I have both cherries and amanos in my tank. They both do fine together. However, if you put in food, the amanos might try to snatch all the food away.

They get along just fine. Amano's will bully cherries for food, but its as simple as pushing them away from food and/or dragging the food away. it gets a little annoying if you like to keep food in a dish :D

Weird I just put the amanos in and my male cherries mounted the amano and wouldnt let go. Amanos are gigantic compared to cherries I dont see how they wouldnt attack them

I keep Amanos, RCS and tiger shrimp in the same tank. No problems.

My male cherries ride my Amanos from time to time. Male cherries still jump out of the way when Amanos charge for food. I think both know that the other can/will do no real harm to the other.

When I break the food into several small pieces, the Amano shrimps just take the whole thing. Besides feeding, no other issues.
