I agree here, I have 20 in a 18" cube and other then to chase food they rarly go to the lower half of the tank so shrimp should be fine.I think it depends on the size of the tank as well....in a 10 gallon, they will stay near the top but do venture near the bottom at times (I have caught mine chasing cherries around)....but in a tank greater than 10 gallons, they will most likely stay near the top. I have them in my 36 gal and I have not once seen them near the bottom of the tank
blast.... so tetras eat shrimp? i have 13HRs & 11 glowlight tetras in my 110 and i plan to keep cherries in the near future, it sounds like i should remove the glowlights... any thoughts?I have 15 HR in my tank and about 500+ RCS. Those rasboras don't care about even the smallest shrimp. You will be good to go. Be careful with your tetra species though... They delight in chasing down and eating shrimp. The only exception I have found is the neon.
Completely +1 to Astrosag, and seaslug I'm sorry the glowlights are very tiny and will only go after the smallest of shrimp so you should be fine but when trying to find fish to co-habitate with shrimp just remember what Astrosag said. I mean tetras are cold blooded killers if you can fit in their mouth that is.Tetra species are far more aggressive than any rasbora species.
Partly why I love rasboras.
