Guppies and Neon tetras as tank mates. The tank is about 40 US gallons.Ch4rlie said:Need a little more info, does your tank have live plants (or plastic even) decor, wood, etc?
All shrimps do tend to hide a lot if in a new tank or feeling unsettled to threatened by a large fish for example.
Might even be good to know what size your tank is.
Both Red Cherry and Amano Shrimps tend to be the hardiest species of shrimps, more forgiving to water parameters than most.
So if you could let us know what your water parameters are, that may help in determining if this is a cause for your shrimp disappearance.
Also could you let us know if this tank has been running for any length of time? as shrimps do better in an established tank.

I have ghosts and cherry in the same tank, with guppies and otos. They all get along well. Except EVERYONE, fish or shrimp, are afraid of "big momma" ghost shrimp, who is about 1/8" shy of being two full inches!
Cherries are VERY hardy! Before I knew what the cycle was, I had two in a 2.5gallon, before upgrading to a 10, and then a 20. But my two cherries survived from the day I put water into the tank, and still going strong. Use drip acclimation and you probably wont lose any ever as well, I havent lost one shrimp from acclimate or stress of move.
Forgot to add: they breed pretty readily as well, I had one berry and deliver babies, before my cycle had completed. Since then, population has exploded, even more so than my
This ghost shrimp sound more like an Amano shrimp.I have ghosts and cherry in the same tank, with guppies and otos. They all get along well. Except EVERYONE, fish or shrimp, are afraid of "big momma" ghost shrimp, who is about 1/8" shy of being two full inches!
Amanos grow to around 2 inches and usually the females are larger than male amanos.
I have 4 amanos, 2 males and 2 females in one 5 gallon tank with RCS and never had issues, bonus of amanos is that they won’t breed in freshwater as the shrimp fry need brackish water to survive.
In fact most species of shrimps will be fine with any other shrimp species as long as their water parameters are suitable to coexist in same water column.
