Just so you know, Ghost Shrimp don't eat algae (much anyway) they prefer to eat what fish eat. That's good if you want a scavenger to clean extra fish food out of your tank. If you want a shrimp to keep your little tank clear of algae try a couple/few Amanos. Also, you might consider that Ghost Shrimp should be at a ratio of about 1 adult per gallon or they may get aggressive with one another. You might want to do a bit of research, but I don't think you'll have that problem with Amano Shrimp.
You also might consider one or two Bamboo Shrimp
in your 10g. They're a bit on the expensive side as far as shrimp go. You would just want to make sure that they would be okay with the barbs though. I have 2 of them in my tank and they are awesome to watch. I call them "Dot" and "Dash".
So... what're you going to do with that 1.5g jar? If you're like me, it will need to have something living in it even though you got the little tank.
