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?

Just started a nano tank just for them and mini crays- RO water and Salty Shrimp. Have some ember tetra's and galaxy rasbora's in there too. Couldn't keep them in anything else due to water chemistry and predation.
