Hi, i have a 25g tank, and i really wanty to keep some cherry shrimp but dont have a seperate tank for them. Could i keep them with the following fish: 2 Black Mollies, 10 Neon tetra, 4 mixed platties and 4 red eye tetra?

I am hoping i can get the shrimp to breed if i could keep them. The tank isnt fuly planted, but it has a few plants,
R.Wallichi, some vals and some ludwigia etc.. I would imagine there is plenty of hiding places for the shrimp. Would this be ok?

Cheers

Full adults maybe, but shrimplets will just get eatten.

I managed to sucessfully keep and breed cherries in my main tank what it looked like this:

As you can see, they had about half the tank to hide in as the fish could not get into the plant mass and there were lots of mosses in the tank. Since I rescaped the fish I have in the tank have eatten all the shrimp.
