Someone can chime in here, but my guess is you have lots of light and no CO2 which is a time bomb for algae. Also, your video is private, so I can't see it.

I wouldn't mix frogs and shrimp. They will stuff whatever they can in their mouths. The cherries will disappear rather quickly; the amanos, depending on size, will either be eaten right away or...

I think the jewels would make short work of the rams; not to mention the differences in water parameter. Jewels are much more aggressive and get a lot bigger.

Always good for fish to hunt their prey; and don't feel too bad for the shrimp, they're well aware they are on the bottom of the food chain!
