    Just about an hour ago I got six 1 inch Amano shrimp that am putting in my 20 gallon planted tank. I put them in there to deal with some pretty bad algae problem and while I was looking at the shrimp I saw that some of the tetras kinda of looked like they were hunting for them, and so I got a little bit worried. So should In just wait and see if that persists or remove the tetras or what?

    Amanos are pretty big but I’d definitely keep an eye on the tetras, have the shrimp got places to hide, such as plants or under wood etc, just in case?

    Yes but the plants haven't grown in well yet due to the algae so there are hiding spaces but I don't think there are enough. Maybe I will have to get rid of the tetras? I don't know please give me your thoughts.
