Shrimp love to have hiding spots. Java moss creates a nice hiding spot for them.

It depends what you mean by "regular light". If its a fluorescent fixture than yeah you should be okay. If its incandescent then no, but have no fear you can easily fix this by switching out the incandescent bulbs with the spiral compact fluorescent. I wouldnt go any higher than 15watts for the spirals because anything higher than that will most definitely cause an algae break unless you inject CO2 and dose fertilizer one a daily schedule.
