Bumble bee shrimp

I found this shrimp on live aquaria and want to get one eventually, it is a Bumble Bee Shrimp (Gnathophyllum americanum). Does anyone know anything about one or have any experience with them? I would appreciate any advice so I can make up my mind on this one.

I've always wanted one but I've heard they have some very specific demands and are not for the average aquarists.

I am hoping to let my asterina starfish spread a bit and when I think I have a good sized population I am planning on getting a couple. Does anyone know if this will help them thrive in my tank? Also will they eat anything else?
