Probably not, unless you can set up a separate tank for them, otherwise they will be food.....

I agree, they will more than likely become food for the fish.

They are also very delicate and almost impossible to raise. They can die just from bumping the tank sides..or so I have read.

Place a small light on the side of the tank at night. It will attract them then you can catch them. But you have to have a special tank set up for them. Small food too like phytoplankton I think.
