In my experience cherry shrimp do badly at 28 degrees and start dropping like flies at 29-30*C. Never tried a sun powered tank myself but you may want to monitor the temperature while you cycle and make your stocking decisions once you know what the tank temperature will be. In that time you can also see if the light is strong enough to grow plants, if not at least you don't have animals to worry about while you make any adjustments.
