Re: Shrimp #2
I'm not sure what the smallest shrimp is... I think Red Cherry shrimp(Neocaridina denticulata sinensis) are about 2-3cm and one of the smalelr types but I dont know if there are smaller or other species of that size.
Amano Shrimp (Cardina multidentia) get to 3-5cm and are also nice for a mature planted tank.

How big is your tank, is it planted and how many dwarf catfish do you have?
