I think smallish Plecs are alright with shrimp, but I'm not 100%. I would imagine they might eat a few but not actually hunt them down.

Smaller mature plecs like protein foods like bloodworm and will probably eat fry but they won't go after adult shrimp. Thats my experience with pitbulls which are even smaller when mature than zebras

Pitbulls are everything eaters. They love wood best but in the process clear algae from the wood. They tend to do the same as Otos algaewise rasping the glass etc. with the added bonus of cleaning the substrate like Corys. Wood is their fave though

£5 is an awesome price. Normally closer to £10
