i just purchased my first ever shrimps today (crystal reds) when i got home i floated them in the tank when i saw 2 tiny babies in the bag and saw that there is a female with a few more to come. i put them all in he tank and thought the babies might be ok, there are a few neons in the tank too will the neons eat the babies?

most likely will make a meal of them, my rainnbow fry were smaller than neons and hate my shrimplets ;)

might survive mate, but if a neon decides to go for one then none will escape ;)

do you find that you get any pairs as two of the three (male and female) are allways together
