    I'm considering obtaining one of these for my aquarium.
    Looking for your experience with them.

    My main concern is if they will prey on amano shrimp / ghost shrimp ?
    I know anything possible but specific experience behavior would help.

    Thank you !

    From what I’ve read on the interwebs, most people say they will pick them off like a competitive eater at a buffet.

    Dang... I guess they will not be welcome to my habitat. Disappointing.

    They are opportunistic feeders so when they are big sometimes they can even eat small fish my whip tail banjo catfish ate all my ghost shrimp and a small cardinal tetra so I had to transfer them to a new tank, however if you do decide you want one get an awesome one!! There are many different types

    Thank you
    I like them but I will not be getting any.
    I have too many small fish and shrimp that would make a buffet for the banjo.

    They definitely look cool.
    ThankyTha for your help.
