    Hey,
    I have a planted tank, 240L.
    Are Peacock Goby an aggressive and hungry for shrimp?
    I’m afraid they’ll extinct my shrimp population of Japonica’s and Denticola’s.
    please point out if you had any experience with these guys and shrimp..

    Thanks.

    I reckon they’d eat shrimplets but maybe adults would be too big for them?

    Here is the thing about fish, it is hard to say what they’ll do, because each of them is different. I’ve had a 1 1/2 inch Ram bite the face of a ghost shrimp and kill it and I’ve had a trio of Apistogramma hongsloi in a tank full of japonica shrimp and not kill one of them. So my suggestion would be to just do what you think is best if there is a fear then I would suggest you not doing it. One bright side is the fact that well fed fish don’t really bother anything else.
