 Is  it  safe  to  release  the  rosies  in  a  tank  holding  shrimps?

 Thanks  for  the  help,
 
 however  the  problem  is  the  tank  is  a  densely  planted  tank  will  the  rosy  barbs  chew  on  the  plants?
 
 the  tank  has  about  40  serpea  tetras  will  there  be  any  compatability  issues?

 Right.  If  co2  is  high  enough,  it  will  vanish  in  1  to  2  weeks.

 Ordinary  Serpea  tetras  are  fin  nippers.Its  will  be  wise  to  correct  the  water  parameters.
