Re: [APD] red cherry tankmates
Yep, they will. It's most likely that these shrimp will grow to adult size
without a problem. Offspring will be hunted and most eaten. If you provide
enough hiding places some baby shrimp should make it to adulthood. Areas
with moss and other fine, dense plants -- such as dense stands of rotatala
rotundiflora or other small leaved stem plants -- will give baby shrimp
places to hide. It is possible to have smaller colonies of cherry shrimp in
tanks with rainbows.
I have duboulayis and boesmanis. Boesmanis are expert hunters, as are
wanamensis. I've never had guppy fry make it to adulthood in a tank with
boesmanis. Some survive in the tank with dubs.
