Can Cherry Shrimp Live with Platies?

Yes, Cherry Shrimp can live with platies harmoniously. Both Cherry Shrimp and platies are peaceful creatures that prefer similar water parameters, making them compatible tank mates. Platies, predominantly herbivores, will not treat shrimp as their food, making it safe for the latter.

However, larger platies may accidentally swallow baby shrimp. So, providing ample hiding spots such as plants, caves, or driftwood for the shrimp, particularly if they’re breeding is essential. As with any multi-species tank, monitoring is crucial to ensure peaceful cohabitation and intervene if necessary.
