    yup. It depends on the resident one's level of aggression/dominance level in the tank.

    I have one of about 6cm and one of about 12cm. They were introduced together as juveniles, but they're docile fish so far. Just be warned that they grow rapidly.

    It's pretty much a given that a carnivour will chow down on shrimps at some stage in its life.
