I, too, would be suspicious of the high temperature. 80 degrees is very high for these shrimp, especially in only a 2.5g tank. You could try to cool the tank down with a small fan, but with a 2.5g...

I am skeptical that hydra alone are responsible for the death of an amano shrimp. I would be curious to see your water parameters before blaming deaths of adult shrimp all on hydra.

gH, kH, TDS, pH. Make sure these values look right first, otherwise you are just guessing and don't have anything figured out when it comes to shrimp.

I would also recommend staying away from c02 while starting out with shrimp. Consider non-c02 obligatory plants for carpeting. Monte carlo might be a good option.

Temperature is a bit high for shrimp (and probably the cray, but I have not kept cpo's). I try to keep my tanks below 76F during the summer. pH is a bit high for bees, but in the workable range. It...

I like the idea of adding at least some color flourish for the reason you stated: so the cycle doesn't simply look like a light going from low to high power and back.

I also add organic spinach raw after rinsing under my RO tap. Blanching destroys many of the vitamins and nutrients in vegetables. Something to think about.

New tanks can be rough on shrimp since there is not much biofilm accumulated. Best advice is generally to cycle a tank for 6-8 weeks before adding shrimp.
