    Pretty simple...

    Will Cats eat my adult or baby shrimp?

    I found a store selling cats @ 5.99 per, eating flake food, etc. look great.

    Pretty sure they are the large size, and school of 7 to start. (I assume 2 wont make it just to make sure)

    Will these work @ 78*, planted tank, 3 driftwood, 20g, ... I have been told by a reliable fish store (Aquatropics, in Minneapolis/St. Paul MN area)

    Have berried shrimp, not worth losing shrimp--- also is a 20 large enough? Or will I need to wait until I upgrade upon new home?

    I personally wouldn't keep glass cats in a 20 gal. I'd wait to get them until you upgrade.

    I'd also assume they'll eat your baby shrimp.

    Many people suggest 30g tanks.

    Glass Cats will definitely eat any shrimp small enough. They have very small mouths but will eat baby shrimp. They also prefer soft acid water, which would be unsuitable for shrimp. :)
