I've been a bit fascinated with some new fish at a local mom and pop fish shop.

They're being called Paradox Fish, and resemble a stickleback. I've Googled them, (forgot to grab their Latin name), see that they prefer live foods like copepods, brine shrimp 'fry' and that they will eat worms and other tiny live foods.

I'm wondering if anyone here has had personal experience with them, wanna know if they are safe around shrimp, including baby crystals and cherries.

Thanks in advance!

had them for a while. daphnia i believe would be the best way to go, they will take them out of the water column, but will also eat things such as microworms, picking them off from the surface of leaves or rocks. they are probably not shrimplet friendly.
