Hey there! Welcome to the hobby. Did you cycle that tank first? If so, you should be good, although it is always better to have shrimp in a well established tank. For now, I would stick with the red cherries as they are the hardiest shrimp out there. Once you get the hang of it, you can delve into others.

What sort of questions do you have? Do you have other tanks?
