Types of shrimps that does well in warm water?

I'm planing to put some shrimp in my 60-f when I flood it with shrimps that can handle warm temp around 80's. What are the different types out there that can tolerate high temp?

Ca is so hot and some times without heater during the summer my tank go up to mid 80's.

The Caridina babaulti complex from India does well at warmer temperatures, and so do Sulawesi shrimp.

Fan only get a few degree lower. Probably gonna need a chiller for summer but that kinda expensive.

I do have some CRS/CBS, right now my tank is 80.4f. They seem to be ok. It wasn't even that hot today in CA. I'm think at the hottest it might go up to 82-85f. If they can survive that then I'll just put the CRS/CBS in the 60-f.

BTW, the shrimps are in a 9g.

CRS can live in 80 degrees but I don't think they thrive in it. I've had them from 78, 76, and found them being most active at 74-75. The other guides I've read also had similar results of them liking cooler temps.

Right now I just have my CRS in a tank with no heater but the temp never drops below 74. The swings of 74-78 are okay for them.

Well see when it get hotter how high the temp will jump. If they don't die then I guess its ok since summer is only a few months long. It will have the rest of the 3 season to thrive and breed.

Im sure ghost shrimp will do fine but theyre boring, im more than positive red cherry shrimp will do fine, just keep a lot of flow because when it gets hot fish get slower and can sometimes become aggressive depending what kind of fish you have

No fish in there just ottos.

I don't really want ghost shrimps. Would rilis be ok in warmer temps? I know that online profile says 23c that like 73.5 but what was the highest temp have members kept them at?
