Ghost Shrimp with Weather Loaches (Dojos)

Who has successfully kept ghost shrimps with Dojos? Given plenty of hiding places for both, could the shrimp still be safe? Do Dojos generally eat ghost shrimps, or does it depend on the individual. I guess what I'm asking is, can the two live together compatibly?

My ghost shrimp weren't even safe with bleeding heart tetras. I have some with a quarter sized angel now and he seems to ignore them.

But hey, they are cheap enough, can't hurt to try. I use to buy them as oscar treats back before I knew how interesting they were to keep as pets. Just recently found out they are more fun to watch over gravel than sand, swapped out my substrates, they are much more active over the dark gravel than they ever were over my light sand.
Your shrimp will likely become delicious snacks for your Dojo Loaches.
