I agree to your hunting quote and organisim being trapped. If you grow ug as I have and cover 60% of your tank as u can tell. Shrimp are more than likely to get caught up in the ug.
Yes I have seen more than one shrimp caught up in the ug. Dead. As any other organism such as planaria and hydras, bacteria and so on there are shrimp cures. I immediately check if I see a shrimp dead. All levels ph, gh, kh, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, hydras, or other unwanted organisms. If all is good I still treat for bacteria and treat for hydras or planaria. By experience I recommend not to get it. But you may have had success with the ug plants it's just my feelings on it.
Happy fish keeping
