I have Red cherry shrimp that are relatively easy to keep, and breed, with water on the softer, lower ph side. They will not handle salt, but I will say I put a couple juveniles in with my puffer (brackish), to eat, and he didn't see one of them as I put them in. 2 weeks or more later, I saw one holding on to a moss ball, so I guess they are pretty hardy. I rescued him out of there
There are many varieties of shrimp that people use in nano tanks, but most will get eaten by fish, so they are usually kept in tanks by themselves
