Green Mandarin and shrimp

I have a Green Mandarin thats about 2". I also have 2 pepperment shrimp that are 3/4". I cannot find the shrimp and it has been the third day I have had them. Would my Mandarin eat them?

I doubt it since they normally eat much smaller pods. I have had pepermint shrimp go missing before, I personally blamed the emerald crabs.
