Never seen my ghost shrimp "attack" one of my fish... They will poke at the fish when they feel threatened but it does no harm to the fish... My fish usually will eat about 4 or 5 of the shrimp in a month..

They can sometimes eat small fry but other than that I'd be more worried about them being eaten than anything else.

Fish will eat the shrimp before he eats them....Agressive fish may find him tasty such as sharks.......But peaceful fish shouldn't pay him any mind and the pleco certainly couldn't care less...

I have seen my three inch goldfish pestering my ghost shrimp and I wonder is he a threat if he tried really hard he could get on e in his mouth should I worry? Lee

Not really, ghost shrimp are meant to be feeders really. If you don't want him to be eaten move him to another tank, otherwise it's a possibility he will be eaten yes, but he could also live.
