do tiger barbs eat all shrimps ?

Ok I am trying to setup a 27 gallon tank with 6 tiger barbs and 3 albino cories. My question is do tiger barbs eat all kinds of shrimp. I know they eat ghost shrimps , but my smaller tank has a ghost shrimp and I simply love it.
Was curious if there was some kind of shrimp that the tiger brabs would live alone?

Probably not. They find them tasty treats.

They'll probably pick on it until it weakens and they can kill it.

My girlfriend kept a tiger barb with amano shrimp, and they seemed ok. I think as long as they're big enough, it would be worth a shot.

These shrimp are alive and kicking and growing like weeds in a tank with 8 Tiger Barbs. They are survivors of 10 that were originally intended for food. 5 are still with me. They have grown considerably and steal food from the Tiger Barbs and every other fish in the tank.
