Hi all,
After many months, I'm finally going to be making my 12 back into an invert tank.   party   I was thinking shrimp only, but while playing on aquabid saw some very cool dwarf crays.  So...
Q1.  Can crays co-exist peacefully with small shrimp like neocaridinas?
Q2.  Are crays the type who will climb the filter tubing (etc) and try to escape or will they be happy to sit on a structured bottom? 

I had a friend who had 3 crabs.  The dog found two, and a child sat on the third in the couch.  I'd really rather not have those surprises...

Dont know about micro crays but I know from my experience with crays that they will tear up a tank and will fight anything. I had 2 in a 20 gallon with their own rock caves and the big one still fought the other. i had a good cover so they couldnt climb the tubing or anything. fed them half an algae wafer a day

20 Gallon: 5 Peppered Cory, 1 Mystery Snail, All Fake Plants
5 Gallon: 2 Red Cherry Shrimp, Java Moss
