RCS and CRS?

Ok I'm new with shrimp keeping and I think my RCS are happy with their set up. I see tanks that have these shrimps together, I would like to try the CRS with cherries. My research tells me that these are very different in tank conditions. What would be the ideal, acceptable or middle ground to accomodate both of these shrimps, these are the parameters for CRS that I found. If I follow this, can cherries be ok? thanks
Crystal Red Shrimp
Caridina Cantonensis
Temp: 68-74F
pH: 6.0-6.6
TDS: 80-180
KH: 0-2
GH: 4-6

I have cherries in ph 6.4, I believe my gh is 6 , tds 180 temp about 74ish. I say ish because there is no heater so its basically room temperature.

That means I should adjust the tank for CRS and the cherries will adjust to that, I can do that.

I don't know much but whatever changes you make to the RCS water parameters do them slowly as the shock would likely kill them.
Good luck!!!

If I decide to get the CRS I will adjust the parameters for them slowly during water change and watch how the RCS adjust to the change, only then I'll get the CRS.

Basically you will have a CRS tank that also has RCS in it. RCS will adjust to damn near anything.

Sounds good, a good learning curve for me.
