Hi Mal

 

I am pretty sure that the pygmy perch would eat cherry shrimp ( unless they don't like the red ones :) )
I have seen them attack glass shrimp ( small ones )

+1 Small glassies are fair game for my pygmies, bigger ones get harassed but not killed or eaten. Never kept them with rcs specifically.
