Clown Loach with Shrimp?

Who plays nicely with whom? Will these breeds share a tank without eating each other? "Dis is da place"

Clown Loach with Shrimp?

I know Clown Loaches eat snails like it's their job, but will they bother freshwater shrimp? Does size of the shrimp make a difference?

I have two clown loaches, two yoyo loaches and several Amano shrimp. Everyone is happily co-existing in my 56G tank.

...As I think about it though, several thousand snails are also happily co-existing too. They cover the plants and driftwood when the lights go off, and burrow in the substrate during the day.

It seems as though nobody told the loaches to go snack on the snails.

I think you feed your loaches too well..
they should be eating the snails AND the shrimp...
whatever works for you
