I've decided not to risk mixing my blue Texas cichlid with other fish, but I do want other life in his tank. He's about seven inches and has teeth. Would be try to eat a nerite or other type of snail, or a shrimp?

The cichlid would definitely eat the shrimp, and there is a chance of it either eating, killing or hurting the snail/shell

That's a shame. Is there anything he can live with?

Maybe other cichlids or a fish that is quick and DOESNT fit in its mouth. There is a chance that the snail and cichlid can work but remember, it is a chance not a guarantee.

Thanks for the input. Given his hobby is absolutely demolishing plants, I think it's too much of a gamble.
