Hey there! I am new to shrimp, so sorry if I ask any stupid questions!

First off, my tank size will be 15 gallons. I am not sure what shrimp I plan on keeping, but I think Tigers would look nice!

Let's say I go with Tigers. What other shrimp could I mix with them?

Now what other inverts go well in shrimp tanks? Could I add a Nerite snail? How about some Malaysian Trumpet Snails?

I just want to get a little eco system going in this tank :) any info is greatly appreciated!

Trumpets are cannibals?

Yikes :/ I think I will stick with a Nerite!

Btw, a side question! How hard is it to take care of Red Crystal Shrimp? They get such a crazy rap of being hard to take care of
