They will attack and kill (eat) other shrimp species and basically anything else they can get their claws on. Cute when they are very small, probably not so cute once they start growing up.

My LFS sells is run by some really knowledgeable people (a husband/wife duo who were actually the founders of one of our local aquarium clubs), they sell whisker shrimp but mark the tanks with big warnings about them, telling people outright that as these shrimp grow up they will wipe out peaceful dwarf shrimp species (things like RCS, Tigers, Bee, Amanos, even ghost shrimp) as well as anything else in the tank slow enough for them to get their claws on.
