Sorry if anybody is bothered by being tagged but I wanted to give you all an update!
I made the changes to my tank and kept a single ghost shrimp alive past a molt, so I added my cherries and they seem to be doing great! No deaths form the five I've added and they've been having a blast in there and are still doing well after a water change
Thanks again for all the help and support! I'm so excited to see if they start breeding at all! And I wish I could get shrimp as cheap as y'all. I posted on every FB aquarium group in my state looking for somebody selling cherries within an hour drive and didn't get anything back, and I couldn't find any shrimp on craigslist. I guess they aren't very popular here. I ended up having to drive an hour out to a pet store that sold them for.... $7 a pop... Might have well as bought them online with how much it was just for 5... lol
