I think small shrimp would be demolished in that tank. What size is the tank? Is it heavily planted? If it is the one shown in your avatar?

Its 3 foot long. All fish are still smallish. It has alot of bogwood init now and more plants are going in soon. It was just a thought but would have liked to introduce them

They would eventually be a food source. But you could put them in now while all the fish are small. When they get eaten, then so be it, a good snack for the fish. Just enjoy them while they last

Try Amano shrimp, they are pretty big and most fish wont mess with them, although you're Angelfish might be a concern depending how big they get.

Angelfish will eat all shrimp. Except bamboos, but even then they may strike when they're molting.
