So am I understanding that you want to get rid of the shrimp because they are breeding so heavily? You may have to just make an effort to catch them one at a time and remove them, just like you might do with snails. I don't know if you could purchase shrimp traps for a tank rather than in the ocean. Eventually your numbers will decrease until you have very few left to reproduce but you may always fight a small problem with them.

If you didn't buy the shrimp from a shop it is likely to be a wild one. There are just too many wild shrimps to be able to ID it.

The only shrimps that most of us can ID are the very few species in the aquarium trade. It would take an expert in the waterways of Vietnam to identify a local wild shrimp.
