    I want to purchase a Vampire Shrimp (Atya gabonensis), however I am worried it will get eaten in my tank. My current fish (listed below) devour Ghost Shrimp whenever I add them in for food. I love the behavior and look of the vampire shrimp and want to have one as pet, not expensive food.

    My fish:
    1 - 5" Fire Eel
    2 - 2.5" Severum
    1- 3" Rainbow Shark
    1- 3" Leopard Bushfish

    I wouldn't risk it. Even if they don't eat it they may pick at its fans.

    I agree I don't think it would last very long, they would probably harass it non stop.

    Is there any kind of invert that would make it in my tank? Thanks for help.
