    What do you guys think about shrimp in a fry tank? Do you think the shrimp would bother the fry? What kind would be good if any? This is just a tenative idea. In the end I will be using this tank for krib fry.

    I have RCS with my Endlers. The Endler fry go to all levels of the tank! RCS are super easy going. They have never bothered anything. I only have experience with RCS and they have been great.

    I have Red Cherry Shrimp with Endlers also... no apparent problems with the fry. I also have a 5 gallon with just RCS. They seem to be reproducing much quicker than the shrimp with the Endlers.

    I have heard that shrimp will eat the bad eggs ans shell bits. It leave health fry alone. This was when I was gathering info on sterbai corydoras fry. I think if they are small enough you should be fine.

    I think it's a great idea too. They'll help keep the tank clean for the fry.
