Shrimp advise!!! Please!

I have always had an interest in shrimp and love the idea of having one. However, I have a tank stocked mostly with aggressive fish. I would love to have a shrimp in my tank but I'm also afraid my fish might find it as lunch. Any ideas of shrimp that would stand its ground and fight back so to speak. I have a 210g with lots of rock. 200lbs roughly.

I have a niger trigger and a lunar wrasse amongst other reef safe fish. No puffers or anything but those two I am afraid would see the shrimp as lunch.
