Gammarus

Has anyone tried adding Gammarus/Scuds to their tanks? From what I understand they are a small freshwater shrimp, but they look more like pill bugs to me. Kordon sells little packets of them at my LFS. I would like to add them to my rivertank with 7 Victory loaches and one Chinese Hill Stream Loach. I know I am being over protective and that the loaches will probably tear them up like sharks. Just curious about if others have used them and how they were received. If the loaches don't eat them they look like they would be pretty cool little scavengers.
