I've seen people mix the two shrimp before but I've never done it myself. I see no reason they can't get along though. I would probably be more worried about the other tank mates eating the RCS just because they're so much smaller.

What Fish do you think would be most likely to eat them?

But atleast the Amano Shrimp probably won't...

The general rule is that if it fits in the mouth it can be eaten. Also, any aggressive fish can pick at it and kill it.

Here's a few sites with some general info on them. http://aqualandpetsplus.com/Bug,%20Cherry%20Red%20Shrimp.htm
