[APD] Barbs and shrimp

I've had a dozen Rosy Barbs in my 75 gallon and 125 gallon tanks along with
small shrimp I catch in the ditches down here in Corpus Christi.  These
shrimp are colorless and about 1 to 1.25 inches long.  Even though they
appear fragile they seem to live a long time in my tanks.  I have never seen
a Rosy Barb go after a shrimp.  In fact I've seen the opposite.  When I
throw in the sinking Wardley shrimp pellets, the shrimp flail their rubbery
arms at the barbs trying to force them away.  Its actually quite comical.
