I currently have micro rasboras with some of my shrimp and they appear to be no problem, but I make no guarantees. Typically ottos are the only fish considered 100%shrimp safe. As far as how many to start with, 10 is what I consider a minimum, especially with fish in the tank, but thats probably where I'd start, this would allow you to see how your fish will react and make sure you dont run into other problems. Ten adults should provide a healthy population in a couple months.
