RCS Tankmates

I have 10g RCS tank and was looking to add another species of shrimp to add a little visual variety.

I bought four amanos only to find that they're bullies and steal all the food from the cherries. I finally just moved the amanos to another tank.

I know no matter what I put in will compete for their food, but are there other shrimp that are a little better match as RCS companions?

Have you tried CRS? They are a little harder to care for, but should not bully the RCS.
You could try malawas, dark greens, greens, tigers, orange-eye blue tigers, malaya, CRS/CBS, bamboos, vampires, Indian white-banded, and red-nosed. But try to match your current pH and KH/GH to the shrimp you want, so you don't have to monkey around to get things right.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll do some research and see what of those fit.
