Probably not a good idea. Aren't all cichlids simply aggressive in nature, and will pick at things at random? If you have access to ghost shrimp, test them out with them to see if they'll eat them. Maybe it would work if you had a large tank with lots of hiding places for the shrimp. I would hate to see shrimp become little expensive snacks.
If you're getting Amano shrimp, you'll be fine since these shrimp are generally larger. But cherry shrimp will likely become snacks.
I never had the guts to keep any fish besides cories, otos, and endlers with my shrimp. They seem to co-exist well together.
