Ive seen mine grab a fry and take off with it. I intervened with a chopstick, but I hold no delusions about how it would have ended.

You are so right, why not give it a try with a few. Few meaning 2 to 3 right or more?

I have several ghost shrimp and I swear they are almost as fun as to watch as my fish! They are really beneficial to my tank since they can stick their hands deep in the substrate and clean up the mess my fish leave behind. Although you do have to watch out because I had a guppy die and within 20 minutes they devoured over half of him. Poor guy. But overall they are great to have IMO.

Shrimp are so cool when you feed them, especially when there in a massive tank.; You put a shrimp pellet in on the opposite side of the tank,
the pellet sinks down,
the shrimp is facing the wrong way,
the shrimp turns round,
the shrimp does a marathon skuttle to the pellet,
the shrimp grabs the pellet with its many arms,
the shrimp runs off in dark spot to eat the pellet all to itself.
