Hey,

I just started a shrimp (CRS) planted tank and found 2 aliens in the tank: Gammarus aka scuds, which is potentially harmful to shrimps and plants.



So I want to get rid of them by adding their natural predator (fish), namely botia yoyo or botia zebra, after moving all of my CRS to another cycled tank.

The question is:

Is botia safe for the plants in the shrimp tank? There are bucephalandra, microsorum, anubias, bolbitis & moss in the tank.

It shouldn't take long. A typical breeding cycle is 3-4 weeks. I would leave the botia in there that long to eat adults, and larvae.
