Botia striata will not eat your Amano shrimp or ghost shrimp. I have had them 
as snail control in my tanks with amano shrimp for a long time.

FWIW, Botia lochata (yoyo loach) are okay in a community tank when small, but 
IME they become aggressive when they get larger. I had to pull the ones I had 
as they were shredding tetra fins.
