RE: shrimp in unheated tanks

Hi June,

I can't say about golfish and shrimp together, but I do have a small 10
gallon set up (Eclipse hood) with a few  guppies (4, all females now) and
about a dozen little shrimps (2 bumblebees and about 6-10 'Algae Eating
Shrimp' which look like the description I have heard for rainbow shrimp). No
heat, lightly planted with crypts, water sprite, java and willow moss,
riccia, hygro and lots of duckweed. This is an almost no maintenance tank-
both the shrimp and the guppies eat the duckweed and algae. It seems in
perfect balance, everyone is happy and there is almost no algae growth.

Do shrimp like unheated freshwater tanks?
Will shrimp disturb/snap at the fantails?
Are there other goldfish-compatible algae eaters?

Thanks in advance, and apologies for being long-winded,
