As with any new livestock, they need to be watched. There have been reports of them eating some corals by numerous people. Yours may be different, but watch to be sure.

the problem with coral shrimp is that there are many species...all harvested under the 'camel' or peppermint shrimp name that look very similar. Correct IDing can determine if yours is a nice one or meanie. I have the complete baensch marine atlas series (even the 4 german ones)...trust me...there are about 9 species of camel shrimp.
