    I have a feeling this isn't going to work but i have no experience with these guys. Can i put a large one in my tank with my 2.5 inch festivum?

    It's not the 2.5 inch festivum that concerns me - it's the 4 inch festivum :) All inverts are vulnerable when they shed their shells - if the cichlid wanted to, it could kill and eat the shrimp - even at 2.5 inches. That's not to say that it won't work - I'm just explaining how very easy it is to kill an invert that's shed it's shell. It would literally be torn to pieces, no matter how big it is.

    Haha , kinda figured. was hoping the festivum would be scared of the big shrimp that kinda resembles predator when its fans are open.
