    Are there any shrimp (under 2.5 inches) that live in freshwater that Dwarf Gourami's won't eat?? I've looked into Ghost Shrimp, Cherry Shrimp, and Amano Shrimp but I heard that Dwarf Gourami's eat them all... Are there any shrimp he won't eat???

    No he will eat any shrimp you put in there.

    I would start a colony in another tank or container with a few RCS and wait for a few months so theres a few generations of shrimp and chuck all of them in your tank. Hopefully the colony is large enough by this time predation doesnt wipe them out

    Thanks! I got ghost shrimp a few days ago to feed to him, & he won't eat them He literally swam right up to one, stared it down, & swam away. The shrimp have been in my tank for about a week now... I'm not sure if he's stalking them down, or if he's really not interested. Thanks for the advice tho!

    Since he doesn't eat ghost shrimp, will he eat any other shrimp?

    Probably not, but he might change his mind one day :)

    I'll make sure to stay on high alert! As of now the shrimp just kinda chills at the bottom of the tank & stares at me... Kinda creepy
