A coral banded shrimp can never be the size of a basketball. Their full size length is 3 inches, 6 with antenna. I don't think a trigger or rang can go in this, but everything else can work.

First, it would be a 'she' if anything. Females are twice the size of males. Plus, and I have to say...pics or it didn't happen!

I have been diving on reefs and have seen a few huge banded cleaner shrimp. Maybe not quite the size of a basketball, but much bigger than 3"
In captivity, it might be possible to grow a really big one. Mine hides all the time, but she/he is now at least 3" and still growing.
