the shrimps will need hiding places but guppies will disturb the shrimps maybe pick at them till they stress and die or eat them.

cory share same space as shrimp so dun think shud be together.

They will get attacked by guppies and for sure the babies won’t survive

I have been keeping guppies with RCS for about two years. Non planted 1ft tank with sand substrate and sponge filter. Had 3 originally and now I'm up to about 9! They do breed but most of the baby shrimp will get eaten up unless your tank heavily planted.

Hi all,


For a 30x20x20 planted tank (ferns, moss, hairgrass), how many tetras can I keep? I already have two snails inside and planning to add about ten RCS too. I'm thinking about 12 tetras if that is ok?

Also would it be a good idea to also stock a male and female guppy inside? To let them breed. I won't feed the fry with special food or anything, just to let them breed and see how many fry can survive to adulthood.

Sure...thanks everyone.

My wife saw some cherry and sunkist shrimps at C328 recently and she asked if I can put them together with the guppies,embers and corys.

Not sure about that so I asked lol.

better to put 1 male to 2-3 female guppies if you want to breed.

anything lesser, the female will be very stress as the male will be chasing her all day long.

as for fry, as long you give them hiding place with lots of moss, they can not only avoid been eaten up by their parents, they can also feed on those micro organism on the plant.

Scared too many females will have too many fry... Heavily planted should be able to let female hide?

its for the fry to hide.
the female will swim near the thick moss to lease her babies.
its very interesting to watch the entire process one.

planning to add some RCS in later stage when the tank is more mature... think i will need a thermometer to monitor the temp in the tank....

got plants n wood for the RCS to hide from guppies....

read that RCS is more hardy shrimps as compared to rest, is it correct?

also, these few days, one of the danios seem like to chase the guppies around the tank, no bitting or whatever happened, just chase them around then stop, then after it catches it breath, go chase another one... sld i be concerned ?
If u buy thermometer also need figure out how to heat/cool the tank

U got aircon ??
