carnivore plants?

938 2

I'm planning to add "utricularia graminifolia" to my shrimp only tanks.
but I found out that it is a carnivorous Plant that ate insects,
so if I submerged it in my shrimp only tank, will it ate my shrimp?

I have not heard of shrimp getting caught. The larger species of UG definitely will get them. UG will have a hard time holding on, and it's possible for the tiniest of babies to get caught.

Aldovanda will eat shrimp. I've seen it. Oops.
