Hi Roxanne

I had shrimp with eggs as well and in a very heavily planted tank.  After a
while there were tiny shrimp everywhere.  The tank has cardinals, rose
barbs,penguins, ottos and pencil fish in it and none of them seem
interested in eating the tiny shrimp.  That's odd, I just realised I havent
seen my ottos for quite some time now!
