Question how many for my tank

I have a 5 gallon tank and I was wondering if I can add a yellow shrimp to it. I have 2
Black Yucatan Mollies in it now and want to make sure that they will not bother the shrimp.

They will surely be eaten by the mollies, especially in such a small tank. Perhaps if the mollies were in an appropriately sized tank, the shrimp would have a shot at being able to sustain a colony. You would need to start with a decent number to give them a foothold.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
