I keep a small bunch of cherry shrimp in a tank with 2 BN and they seem quite fine. The shrimp just tend to flick away when one of their antennae touch a BN. But I haven't had the shrimp breeding in there yet as I just recently got some males for them. So yeah, not sure if baby shrimp will do quite so well with 2 bristled vaccuum cleaners in there but we shall see. Smile
