    Just curious if I could put a few RCS in a 10 gal. that has 3 very old glofish in it. There are several hiding places including pvc connectors, fake plants, and I have a marimo ball on its way. Any insight would be great.

    They should would be just fine. Glofish aren't necessarily predators and their mouths are too small to eat them anyhow. Just be sure they get fed (which they probably will be from leftover food)

    Actually it depends on the type of glofish :). Are these the tiger barbs, zebra danios, or skirt tetra?

    The tiger barb and skirt tetra will definetly eat the RCS but not sure about the danios.

    Ghost shrimps are different than RCS, they are bigger for the start thus making them harder to eat. RCS stands out and are slower thus making them easy targets if the fish are interested.

    Yes they are the white skirt tetra version of the glofish...so you're saying ghostshrimp would be better than RCS?
