Is there other shrimp that is colorful? That stand out
Bamboo Shrimp are not the easiest. Filter feeders. Not easy breeders. Room for 2 in your tank. 3 ? They need a perch near filter outflow. If they are picking at the gravel they are starving.
Try RCS if you want color. Small ? Yes. Active and pretty ? Yes. Easy breeders ? Yes. Read, research. Lots of info under Freshwater Inverts on here.
