Will Guppies, and shrimp, get along with a siamese algae eater?


Recommended Posts

I find SAEs extremely effective at hair algae in my experience. In my tank, it’s the only thing to take on the longer threads that have gotten a foot hold and that the snails and Otos won’t touch. But when full grown, I’d imagine an sae might gladly gobble up baby shrimp.

I’ve had cherry shrimp with a very fat adult sae and it seemed to leave them alone, either that or they were just masterful at avoiding it. The key is lots of cover and thick plants for the shrimp  

Other than that, an sae is pretty peaceful with every fish I’ve kept them with, but do have a tendency to  be piggish and hog food when full sized.
