I would caution you that if you use shrimp you can
expect some fry predation. I keep "amano shrimp"
(Cardinia japonica) and ghost shrimp. I have seen the
shrimp ambush good sized fry.

I have one tank that has a number of shrimp in it and
I toss the plants
there. These things will leave the plants alone but
will pick off small
water bugs, snails eggs, leeches etc. in a matter of a
shrimp such as the Macrobrachium sp. do an even better
job than the
shrimp in this case and I usually have several dozen
handy at all
these shrimp are prolific and make excellent food for
and mince, then feed.
