    Good evening all,
    I currently have a few blood shrimps in a 240g tank and curious to know if I could keep a blue face angel with them or similar angel or would they be fish food for the angel.

    Thanks for any advice, its greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    Chris.

    It would be a gamble for sure. Expensive dinner if you take the gamble!

    I think that it depends on his size. When you buy the angel juvenile and feed him regulary (well) it wont be a problem. But a small risk is a risk aswell...

    I my case there's a small shy P. Navargus with cleaner shrips (I know it's a big difference). He sips on coralpolyps and leaves everything other alive at rest. My tank is half your size.

    Thanks [MENTION=24344]pelici25[/MENTION] I saw a juvenile in my local store and fell in love with him, but I didn't get him as I wanted to make sure of any problems first, thinking with my head and not my heart this time which I have learned the hard way in the past.

    I know that feeling, and have learned that lesson as well. ;)

    But sometimes...
