What fish are you maintaining along with your taiwan bee shrimp? I used to be considering on getting some Otocinclus Catfish (Otocinclus…

  1. Pygmy cory, chili rasbora both are good

  2. No fish is shrimp safe but Oto’s are the best route. Not sure if they’ll eat the worms though.

  3. I have dwarf rasboras (boraras maculatus) which is similar to chili rasboras. I love them as shrimp tankmates! My shrimp still breed successfully. They keep down the worms and seed shrimp. Their temperament is very shy and gentle and similar to shrimp in a pleasing way!

  4. I’ve heard they may eat the tiniest newborn shrimplets but in general they don’t perturb the babies much.

  5. I keep pygy cories with my shrimp

  6. I highly recommend a group of ottos and pygmy together

  7. Bumblebee Oto. About half the size of a regular Otto. I keep them with my shrimp. Tend to be hard to find though as they’re wild caught.

    [Here’s](https://www.reddit.com/r/Aquariums/comments/kf7aoh/bumble_bee_otocinclus/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) a post of them from [r/aquariums](reddit.com/r/aquariums) from about a year back

    I also keep nerites for cleanup but they do lay a lot of eggs that will never hatch.

  8. i added 6 pygmy corys to my blue bolt tank yesterday 😀

  9. Have kept pigmy Cory’s for the bottem but only when not having CPOs. Right now as we have CPOs we have Chili Rasboras, Celestial Pearl Danios, and Norman’s lamp eye and clown killifish. The killis stay at the top mostly and seem to completely ignore our various sized shrimp floating above them in the red root floaters. The chili rasbora stay mid and ours even eat out of the shrimp food bowl with the shrimps so do the CPDs sometimes as well. I have never personally seen our dwarf Cory’s eat or chase shrimp but I’m sure some new hatched babies do sometimes dissapear but we have plenty of babies about.
