Actually I was planning on replacing the ghost shrimp in favor of the yellow as I had read about problems and saw a YouTube video of a ghost eating a yellow.

The fish haven't bothered the small ghost shrimp (maybe half full adult, possibly a third) so I don't think the fish will be a problem. The gourami is a piggy but incredibly nonaggressive. The cardinals kind of shoal around him.
