Bamboo shrimp tank mates??

I feel like I already know the answer to this, but I just want some clarity. I was thinking about getting 1 or 2 bamboo shrimp for my 90G planted tank, but I also have yo-yo loaches, tiger loach, tiger barbs and rams. From what I’ve researched over the years having these fish are big no no’s with shrimp. But given the bamboos larger size and the many places it would have to hide, would this work stocking work?? I’ve heard of some people having success and same not. Thoughts?

Yoyo loaches do not bother my amano shrimp. I'm still not sure if they snacked on my neo shrimp in my community tank or not.

Yeah I’m not so concerned about the yo-yos, more about the tiger loach. It is significantly larger than my yo yos. I would say he is around 4 to 4.5 inches.
