Are they toxic or are there reasons why I should not inculde them as feeders along with ghost shrimp feeders?

Sounds fine to me, but if they are true backswimmers watch your fingers when you catch them! The "bite" is painful.
Sorry for the derail but very early this spring while sampling an area, I was stung by what I assumed to be a madtom. I was rather excited since I'd never found any madoms in the area. I never found any madtoms in my nets and continued to get stung. The sting didn't last very long and wasn't as painful as a madtom. I guess I'm a slow learner and later realized the little bugs that resembled the shape of a harlequin bug and were colored yellow white and black on their undersides were not only stinging me but also would sting the fishes in my net. I guess I just told this whole story to warn you that what stings you might also sting/bite fish.

So they aren't good feeders/temporary tankmates?
I didn't say that. I only said what bit/stung me also bit/stung the fish in my net. nothing more, nothing less. You'll have to decide if they're right for your tank.
