Ive just been reading about Utricularia graminifolia and apparently they eat insects and crustacean would this mean baby shrimp are in danger of being eaten ?

Its bladders trap paramecium and small amphipods, I doubt they could catch something 1 mm at largest, paramecium are about 0.05mm - 0.3 mm.
