A few weeks/month back I found some (at least 4) damselfly nymph in my shrimp tank and I think they ate all my baby Snowball and CRS :( How did they get into my tank and how do I get rid of them? Actually I haven't seen any in a few weeks but I just want to be sure.

The usual way they come into a tanks is as eggs on new plants. Very seldom is there more than one or two come in . Your 4 is an exception .. Only way I know of to eliminate them is to net them out when you see them .
They are predatory , as you've seen with your shrimp .. They will get big enough to take fish up to the size of guppies.
