My advise with lobsters, no matter what the size, is not to mix them with fish you're not wanting to be using as food. Lobsters will attack ALL fish, especially as they sleep.

As to Shrimp, I have mine with Endlers. No problems. All my other fish eat shrimp as part of their diets

Hi,
I have a 40 gallon tank the that I put 6 Amano Algae Eating Shrimp Caridina japonica in with my Discus when I was having algae problems. The other inhabitants are White Cloud, Black/Red Pladdy, Siamese Algae Eaters and I have had no casualties.

Oh - yes I agree as well. I was commenting about my experience with shrimp. Lobsters and Crayfish will hunt.
