Question 1 Amano shrimp with 5-7 Cherry Shrimp?

Too cut a long story short, i had 4 amano shrimp in my tank, 3 of which died and only 1 survived.

I want to get some cherry shrimp to replace the amanos but...

Will the 1 Amano be ok with 5-7 Cherries?

Thanks all

Awesome, thanks

I just wanted to make sure he wasn't going to get bullied or it be him doing the bullying.

+1 no problem, he might bully a little when eating, but no issue.
