I've tried that, and have lost some (adults). The tiny babies that I've put in, I still find sometimes during water changes. The adult was a not so bright RCS that was used to being in a tank with no predators, and she was hanging out on a leaf like she owned the place Poor thing did get eaten. I have tons of java moss, and I've caught babies at times while doing water changes, so they are doing fine hiding in the moss. They get sucked up, and I put them back in, and they quickly dive right to the java moss again.
I never see them however, in the tank otherwise. I'm sure if I did they'd get eaten, so you can keep them as food if you want to do that. But if you're spending a bit of money on them, I wouldn't do it. If you do, make sure they have lots of plants and moss to hide in.
