I don't think Bumble Bee shrimp like Nitrates very much. EI dosing has plenty of nitrates. Cherry shrimp and amanos are fine with EI dosing.

People feed hikari algae wafers to their shrimp. Make sure that what ever you choose to feed has NO copper in it. Copper will kill your shrimp. Shrimp will feed off the plants and leftover crud. Don't overfeed as the food will raise the ammonia and nitrates and kill your shrimp.

Yes shrimp climb. I have them only in closed-lid tanks. I know others have them in open tanks. Maybe they don't loose too many.
