using brine shrimp to figure dwarf shrimp compatibility?

Okay, so here's my idea.
adult dwarf shrimp generally range from 1/2" to 1&1/4" full size, depending on species.
Adult brine shrimp are about a half inch long, tops, and are less agile than dwarf shrimp and have softer shells.

I think you guys know where i'm going with this:
which fish do you know of that either can't kill adult brine shrimp, or better yet, don't even try?
(Eating them when they're practically dead is okay, I consider that borderline scavenging)

I'm figuring any fish like that would be fairly safe with Adult Dwarves in a heavily planted tank.

If you are talking about general tropical fish I would stick with small tetras, rasboras, maybe some small live eaters like endless, catfish look at otocinclus and smaller corydoras.

When folks tell me they have L cats with African cichlids, I just remind them that they could live in a port-a-loo, but they would not be happy. Capisce?

Most BN plecos will eat brine, but leave dwarf shrimp alone.
