    I wasn't worried about stocking shrimp with denison barbs or german blue rams until a conversation in another thread. Both fish are considered peaceful.

    Has anyone kept them these fish with shrimp? Any problems?

    I searched both the forum and online for compatibility with shrimp and I couldn't find anything. Anyone know of a good website for finding shrimp to fish compatibility?

    A lot of fish will consider shrimp a snack. I guess if you provide plenty of hiding spaces they may do ok. Not sure of the fish mentioned but with any fish it is a possibility that they will eat them.

    I can't comment on the barbs, but smaller shrimp like RCS would probably not be safe with rams. Babies would certainly be eaten, and molting adults would likely be on the dinner menu as well.

    Aquatic Plant Central and PlantedTank.net both have threads about fish that are generally compatible with shrimp, and PlanetInverts.com has a similar article:
