Marimo ball & shrimp

Has anyone tried a Marimo Algae Ball (Cladophora aegagropila) in a shrimp tank? Specifically, with Red Cherry Shrimp. Will they eat it or just treat it as another plant to climb on? Seems like one might be a good 'staple' diet if the shrimp will eat it. Thanks in advance!!

I honestly did not think so, but it was worth asking. I am running out of plants to move in with them that have algae. They get enough other food, but it is fun watching them forage.
