    Default Would Amano Shrimp or Bamboo Shrimp be safe with a Honey Gourami (Trichogaster chuna)

    I have a 75 gallon aquarium with 1 male Honey Gourami, 10 Cardinal Tetras, 10 Harlequin Rasboras, 8 Gold Tetras, 7 Black Neon Tetras, and around 15 Panda Corydoras. I would absolutely love to have some shrimp in here. I used to have an aquarium full of Cherry Shrimp, and really miss having shrimp. However, in the place I live now I just don't have room for another tank, so I am wondering if I could fit some type of shrimp in there without the risk of being eaten. Honestly, I'd probably prefer the Amano Shrimp, which I think are cuter and more reminiscent of Cherry Shrimp, but I'd settle for the Bamboo Shrimp if the Amanos wouldn't work. Would either the Amano or the Bamboo Shrimp be safe with my current stocking?

    Hi, I'm no expert but I just wanted to let you know I have 2 honey gouramis "Trichogaster chuna" (a male and female) together with 8 galaxy rasboras and 3 amano shrimp. My gouramis really don't bother the shrimp at all, they completely ignore them actually, as do my galaxy rasboras. My tank is rather small, around 20 Gallons, I'm looking to get a bigger one but so far they have been absolutely fine even in my size tank so I would think that in your 75 gallon tank it really wouldn't be a problem.

    Just wanted to give you my 2 cents but I hope someone with more experience than me can confirm!
