I don't think the Bristle Nose will eat adult sized shrimp, but anything is possible. Usually, if it will fit in a fish's mouth, it is a goner. Research Bristle Nose Catfish to see if they have any tendencies toward eating shrimp.

IDK about the bristlenose. I tried shrimp in my tank and didn't have any luck. I think they became snacks for my loaches...

Anyone else have that problem where one tank is not enough??
