    As harpua said, shrimp can't "get" ich (meaning the ich parasite won't feed on shrimp), but I've read posts in a few places mentioning that ich parasites in the dormant stage may settle onto a shrimp's shell and be transferred to a new tank if the shrimp is moved prior to molting. Yet another reason to quarantine everything.
