Did you ever have issues with drangonfly or damselfly nymphs getting in there? That's my main concern.
I've had both dragonfly or damselfly nymphs. I've never actually seen them eat a shrimp, but then again the most recent one I pulled out looked big enough to eat the White Clouds as well as the shrimp. I'd recommend looking for nasties at night with a flashlight. It seems to be the best way to find them.
