Agree with JustJen.Might wait until shrimp population number's in the hundred's before introducing near any of the dwarf cichlid's.
Even with plenty of hiding places for young shrimp.
Starting with less than a dozen shrimp,,the cichlid's could eat em up overnight.
I have around a couple hundred shrimp in 300 litre with cories,and cardinal tetra's.The tetra's pick off young shrimplet's, but population is too large for them to do much damage.
