It's very rewarding to have a shrimp only tank! The shrimp also tend to be out often and more active when they don't have potential predators around.

acitydweller Vampire and bamboo shrimp can't fend for themselves so I'd recommend a shrimp only tank.

Nambroth Vampire and bamboo shrimp seem to stress easily, and feed best where they can get in the flow of the aquarium. I'm not saying it cannot be done, but with the fish listed, I'd never try it. Fish don't have to fit the whole shrimp in their mouth to kill them.

Puddles Vampire shrimp get like 4 inches long, I'm not sure any of the fish listed could eat them. Might harass them and try to bite their legs, but with enough hiding places it might be ok.

Ashnic05 That's what I thought. Might just do a shrimp only tank, that seems to be the best route. Thanks!

Axelrodi202 All the fish you listed except for the hatchets would most likely eat shrimp.

wicca27 they will get eaten bamboo might have a chance if its already good sized but i wouldnt count on it. good rule of thumb when it comes to tanks, if it might fight in the mouth they are going to try

Questions about certain shrimp

Wondering the temperament/ water parameters/ compatible tank mates for the following:

Vampire shrimp
Ninja Bee
Black or Red Crystal

Current tank mates:

Cory Cats
Gold Barbs
Honey Sunset Gourami
German Blue Ram
Cardinal Tetra
Marbled Hatchets

I'm also planning on getting a bamboo/ Singapore flower shrimp when my tank is established enough (only been up about 2 months).
