peacock gudgeon with shrimp?

I have a Peacock Gudgeon tank that is 5 gallons and is decorated with driftwood and rocks. I was wondering if I could put a Crystal Red Shrimp or 2 in there. It only has 1 male peacock gudgeon with lots of hiding places. Are they shy or do they come out a lot?

Pretty much all shrimp (except for Amanos IME) are shyer in the presence of fish. I think it'd be rather risky putting in CRS with a peacock gudgeon.

I think I'm going to go with Axelrodi202 on this one. Especially in that size tank that's that not that much room for them to hide. I have my PGs with RCS but there in a 55g and I never seen them go after shrimp but that doesn't mine that they haven't.

110g Tropical Community & Sakura Shrimp
55g BN Breeding Grounds, Peacock Gudgeons, Panda, Pygmies, & Smudge Spot Cories, Rili Shrimp
10g RCS and show guppies
