They are easy to keep. As was mentioned, they don't need much. A 5 -10gal with a sponge filter is more than enough for a colony of RCS or other smaller Neo's. Simple Plants like Java Moss, Java Fern and Anubias would do nicely along with some DW and a few rocks wouldn't hurt.
You can start with inexpensive shrimp like Ghost Shrimp. After a month, you can go with RCS and or Amano Shrimp. All three of these I find are relatively easy to find at LFS
