One madtom I kept certainly enjoyed making tankmates dinner - even
tankmates that this aquarist thought were too small for a madtom of its
size. If I was in your place, I would try it, but be prepared to move the
madtom to its own quarters if any of the darters mysteriously disappear.

Trial and error - one of life's greatest learning tools.
