    I have a 5 gallon tank with a betta in it, a 10 gallon with african dwarf frogs, and a 20 gallon with platys, black skirt tetras, ghost catfish, a chinese algae eater, and mystery snails. Would I be able to put red cherry shrimp in any of these tanks?

    You could put them in all those tank, provided you have a lot of plant cover :)

    I will say, I have issues with my ADF's eating shrimplets, as well as my betta. They make tasty little snacks lol But once they are a bit bigger, and smarten up, I have no problems :)

    Your 20 gallon tank is overstocked. Before you add anything to this tank, you really need to research the individual species you have an rehome some.

    The betta will eat the RCS.The black skirts (which you should consider rehoming) will eat them, too.
