Ghost shrimps may attack the fry but cherries will not easily bother them.

The Cherries are so small and would add a nice dimension.
I'm just concerned about buying online and getting something I dont want along with them.
I want to add Java Moss...but Dont want Snails!

You might have to dip the plants in copper sulfate but they must be wash thoroughly to remove any small trace of copper which can prove harmful to all invertebrates. It's very risky unfortunately.

I'd recommend Cherry Shrimp for a couple of reasons. Ghost shrimp don't touch all types of algae and aren't the most efficient cleanup crew. Also, Ghost shrimp get pretty large and their claws can get somewhat dangerous even to adult fish.

Thank You all for the reccomendations.
I think I'll go with the Cherries and just quaratine the Java Moss in a different tank just in case it's carrying the snails.
