RCS and fry

I have a 10 gallon planted tank I keep cherry red shrimp in, and I'm raising some German Blue Ram fry in there, to keep the fry seperated from my community tank. So far, I have not seen the shrimp pick on the fry, but I have been warned by an aquarium vet that the shrimp may pick on the fry during the night. Does anyone know if this is true or has seen this happen before? This is the first time I have ever gotten German Blue Ram fry to survive for so long(going on 2 weeks now), and already have a new batch of eggs is in there. Just wondering if I am wasting my time.

I have not heard of RCS going after fry. Ghost shrimp yes but not cherries. It is possible I guess but they are a more docile shrimp so less likely than with other shrimp. Either watch for them shrimp grabbing them or for their number to start going down is about the only way to tell. My ghost shrimp didn't care day or night, they would grab them whenever they could.
