Scuds shrimp plecos

So I have a 20 long I have a potential breeding pair of bristlenose. I want to add a big wad of my java moss but the tank that has java moss also has scuds. My question is will the scuds have a negative effect on the plecos breeding? I have shrimp in both of these tanks and they are doing great. Would the scuds possible become a food source for the plecos? Or just another inhabitant or would they eat the pleco eggs?

searched 'scuds eat fish eggs' and found this from the forum:

Quote:
They will not hurt free swimming fry but newly hatched fry and that includes pleco fry that accidentally get kicked out of the pleco cave and still have an egg sack will be attacked. The scuds go after the egg sacks leaving the fry to die. Once the egg sack is used up or the fish are free swimming the fry are fine. So if you more the fry into this tank as a grow out tank it will be ok but if you add fish larvae or eggs they are going to be food.
If you want pleco babies I'd avoid the scud-y moss.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
