The L015 or Candy striped pleco is omnivorous. Not the best algae eaters in the world and rely on a lot of protein from meats. That being said, in my experience, I have never had a pleco 'hunt' anything. The shrimp 'should' be fine so long as they chose not to walk into the pleco's mouth. Any dead shrimp will be eaten by the pleco and any unfortunate enough to simply be in the wrong place at the wrong time could also be eaten. However, this is the case with many fish. So, I would say if you are feeding him sufficiently with a balanced diet then your shrimp will likely do fine. They would probably do fine even if it was actively hunting them. Give it a go I say.
