Can UV light kill my RCS shrimps?

I want to ask my dad (I'm 14) to buy my mini aquascape a UV light since 2 of my fish got infected by an ich. Will it kill my RCS? I'm just worried cuz they look so adorable! :=Ä (trying to make a shrimp face)

No it won't kill your shrimps. Don't worry.

Make sure the shrimp cannot get into the UV light chamber. There should be a sponge to keep anything besides water from circulating through.

As long as the ich is treated, then the uv sterilizer is unnecessary.
