I don't know sorry bud - I'm terrible with common names, it's the ichthyologist in me that just won't have a minute of it :lol:.

I have a suspicion that what you refer to are actually called Palaemonetes paludosus. Much smaller, my fish would eat them in a matter of seconds :lol:.

swordtails will breed with other swordtails and platies, not mollies. if youre doing a 20 gallon i would start off with one male and 4 females. youll have more fry than you can handle in no time so stocking the tank wont be a problem. just make sure you have more males that females because the males are always really really horny.
