Baby bristlenose cat in shrimp tank

Gday guys and gals

My albino bristlenose have had there second lot of babies, 2 survived from 6 the last time but i can only see one little fella this time and i was thinking of putting him in my 30L shrimp tank till he gets bigger.
My shrimp colony is only second generation so dont wanna wake up to find a fat baby catfish and no little shrimp in my tank. Would the cat eat the shrimp and if so roughly when would he start to go for them?

Thanks in advance

A bristlenose would almost certainly eat baby shrimp if it got the chance I'm afraid. And as for when he would start it depends on tank size and how many babies etc. he'd probably try from about an inch or so in length, but it would be possible for him to try sooner.

I disagree. I have 4 juvenile green dragons and a calico BN with shrimp and they don't bother them whatsoever
