Amano Shrimps with yoyo loaches?

Post by debiharry »

I think I know the answer but I want to be certain.  I have yoyo loaches in my tank, would they eat amano shrimp?  If so, is there anything similar to the amano that will survive in the tank? Thanks.

Yo-yos will eat shrimp and snails, so the answer (as you probably expect) is no, you can't and there isn't anything similar.
Sorry.....
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! :D

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!
