Bristlenose Pleco w/ Dwarf Shrimp?

They're going to be in a 55 gallon tank with plenty of plants for cover. The Albino BN is about 5 inches long.

I'm also split between the Sakura Reds and Blue Velvet?!?!

Thanks in advance!

My Bristlenose has gone after my ghost shrimp. but he goes after anything that is in his space. as far as eating shrimp all fish will eat shrimp, It's just whether they can fit it in their mouth or not. and Bristle's have big mouths. I have never seen mine eat shrimp. but i have seen him chase them.. Maybe someone else can tell you yes or No. but i can only speak for mine..

I've got a pretty good colony in my 46 gallon, but I gave them a pretty good head start. The tank has a bunch of Cory's, an albino BN, an Angel, 3 huge Amano shrimp, and 5 Rosy Barbs. Lots of hiding places, driftwood, and heavily planted, and good size colony to start and they should be OK.

That tank really tied the room together
