    Default Is it possible to keep Aphyosemion killifishes with Shrimps

    I was wondering, is it possible to keep Aphyosemion and Nothobranchius with CRS and Cherries?? Has anyone tried them together before?

    thanks.

    I have not, but killies will eat just about anything you feed them. Can you say shrimp snacks for killies?

    I keep clown killi with my CRS and they seems ok. the main reason i have them in my tank is to control cyclops population. they leave my shrimps and shrimplets alone so far.

    Clown killies that I kept awhile back left the adult shrimp alone but they did go after the shrimplets. I guess in this case YMMV.

    Pls dun even try to keep killi's with crs. i had one experience when i introduced a killi in. not too sure which species it was. yellow and red colour killi. It ate my cherry up whole! It struggled to swallow it. but couldnt as the cherry was quite big in comparison to the killi. So it kept spitting it out and going for it again. Killis do go for cherries and it definately will not spare ur crs.
    As for clown killis, they should be fine if u dun plan to breed them. If not, ur shrimplet will end up as really expensive protein.
