Help. fish for shrimp tank

I currently have a planted aquarium with about 20 Cherry shrimp and they are doing very well and they are breeding, I was thinking about adding some fish to the tank but I'm not too sure because I don't want any fish that will eat the baby shrimp, or any of the shrimp at all. Anyone got any Fish that they would recommend that would not destroy my plants or my shrimp?

Chili rasbora, pigmy cory cats, oto cats are about the safest fish you can keep with cherries.

Note that even if they don't eat the shrimp, the shrimp will hide a lot more if there is fish present.

At this point I have to agree. I have a pretty well planted Spec V and did some research as to fish with Tiger shrimp. I came up with Chili Rasboras as they have tiny mouths and most comments were they were generally shrimp safe. Well I am now trying to figure out how I am going to get them out without completely destroying the tank cause I know they have been eating my shrimplets! I had three females carry eggs to term and after over a week of all of the eggs hatching I have only ween one or 2 babies.
