hi my tank is about 15g and made it a shrimp tank with 1 baby bamboo shrimp, 2 yellow nose shrimp, 2 ninja shrimps, 1 white line bee and 3 yellow shrimps. I was wondering if it is safe to add tiny fishes on the tank since I can see little white circle parasites starting to invade the tank, will it be safe for my shrimps and the future of my yellow shrimp babies? 2 of my yellow shrimps are preggy at the moment.. here are some pics of my tank:

Difficult as fish that eat planaria will also feast on baby shrimp.
Maybe, once the planting has grown in to provide dense cover, you could try sparkling gourami?
