I had 5 Japonica in a tank to which I added 3 Jordanella (JFlo?).  A few
days later I had 4 Japonica.  I think one molted and became lunch.  The
shrimp have molted since then without becoming fish food, so maybe we're
over that problem.

I also found that I couldn't keep the JFlo with fancy male guppies.  That
only took a few minutes to figure out.  I think their tails will grow back
