Wild scuds = good?

I just brought a couple of water plants back from the river, and they're sitting in a bucket so I can get the bugs off. Among those bugs are about six scuds, and I was wondering if they're good things to have in an aquarium. Said scuds are sitting in a cup of tank water, scudding around. I was thinking of possibly culturing them, then putting a bunch in the tank now and then. Any imput on this idea? I'm pretty sure scuds are harmless scavengers, and I remember having a few in a tadpole tank once. They never harmed the tads, that I could tell.
My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.
