This is especially true if one of your ghost shrimp happens to not actually be a ghost shrimp but a Macrobrachium sp. If your ghost shrimp don't pick on the cherries your gourami or tetras most likely will. You can kiss any shrimplettes goodbye and if the fish feel like they're underfed you can kiss the adults goodbye as well
