Hara jerdoni & Pests

Well, after some researching I found that seed shrimp have special shells that protect them from toxins...I guess that explains why they lived after I poured literally over half a bottle of AlgaeFix in a measly Minibow 2.5. I've come to accept the fact that you can't get rid of them in shrimp tanks, but do you think 4 Hara jerdoni would eat them all in a Minibow? There's not much information about them online, and I was just wondering if they would do a good job of eating them.

Cute catfish...

Is there something wrong with seed shrimp that I don't know about?
