Are Shrimp Worth It?

I'm hoping to build a paludarium in around two months (lots of planning and research first) and I'm wondering about adding shrimp.
I like shrimp, they're cute and interesting to watch but on the flip side they seem to breed really fast and they are delicate. I don't mind learning about all that goes in to it, making sure they molt properly and the chemistry of the tank, I'm only worried about killing them.

So, are they actually that hard? What are your arguments for and/or against shrimp?

Do Neos actually breed that fast? I have no idea what I would do if they overpopulate.
They can, I wouldn't worry too much about overpopulation. From what i've experienced and from chatting with others, they tend to balance themselves out.

I think its only as hard as you make it. If you're willing to learn about water chemistry you'll definitely have a better experience.
