This varies.....some tolerate shrimp and other do its hard to say....just add lots of hiding places for the java moss or other plants to increase the odds of success.....

21.6 litres that's... Oh boy, I always have trouble remembering my conversions - 5.71 Gallons (Thanks, google!) It's hard to answer that question though, as it varies from person to person. Tank-wise, yes you can accommodate a few shrimp. It's your fish that may not like them. I recommend trying ghost shrimp before you splurge on cherries, amanos, etc and see how they do. They're 6 for a dollar at my LFS. Worst that happens is that you don't have to feed for a day... No big money down the drain.
