Maybe some larvae, but certainly not adults. As long as the larvae have plenty of hiding spots (such as a ton of moss), they will be fine. A gorgeous underappreciated fish.

Most all killies from tropical regions are predators, including the gardneri. That being said, adult RCS and amanos should be safe. In a well planted tank enough of your young RCS should survive to keep the population going. I have killies and shrimp in both my tanks and do not have a shortage of RCS.
