Hi
Can you keep Amano shrimp with angelfish? I want to keep some to deal with algae, but AqAdvisor warns that angelfish might eat them. Any thoughts? Experience?

Have a friend who keeps angelfish. Unless you're trying to give your angels a snack, I vote STRONGLY against putting angels and amano shrimp together.

Juvenile angel fish can be okay with large adult amanos for a little while when they are in the first stages of grow out (after separation from parents). If this is your situation and you have a place for the amanos after then I would say go for it. This is 99.99% of the time not the case, though. Nerite snails are excellent algae eaters, though you may have to place them on the area you want cleaned and they have a reputation for dropping eggs everywhere. Just my 2 cents.
