IME bamboo shrimp would be in a tank on their own, or with other shrimp, corries, ottos.... basically keep them away from anything that will nip at their filters (for feeding). as stated above (great info) they can scavenge the ground BUT thats a sign they are being starved. i found that neons and larger fish will nip those filters and cause the bamboo shrimp to become stressed and die early. those balas will most likely eat it as soon as it sheds (if it cant completely hide.)
they do need several perches along the tank. this will allow them to choose what current to be in. high flow for them is also key.
