I've got some shrimp coming in and I'm going to rearrange some tanks. I've got a 20L with some plecos growing out. I'm going to move the gertrudae rainbows I have in with them and put the shrimp. Will the plecos hunt down the shrimp or do you think they'll be safe?

The only time I ever put a pl*co in a shrimp tank, the pl*co acted dead and the shrimp treated it accordingly.

Short fin BN, RCS, guppies all living and breeding in the same tank... Only issue is that occasional when the male BN gets "fiesty" he'll run over a red cherry.

I never had a problem with them being together.

many species of plecos are primarily meat eaters....they will eat shrimp...
