I have a 5 inch flying fox and a 5 inch Chinese Algea Eater in my 55 gallon and i'm wondering if they would eat Ghost Shrimp if I put them in. They both have "sucker" mandibles but I'm not sure how they would fare....

Any help would be appreciated.

I have four Siamese Algae Eaters, which may or may not be the same as your 'flying fox', and had a small Chinese Algae Eater (became too aggressive, so back to the lfs he went...) and none of these fish bothered with the ghost, Amano, and other types of shrimp in my tanks. HTH.
