RE: Amano Shrimp and fry

    I would worry about fish fry in a tank with these shrimp.  Just this week 
I was feeding live blackworms and one drifted past an Amano shrimp.  The 
shrimp grabbed it and devoured it.  There is a bit of hair algae still in the 
tank, and they eat the extra flake food off the powerhead intake sponge, so 
he wasn't starving either.
