Hi and welcome aboard, mudskipperman.:wave:

Red Cherry Shrimps are good options. 10 gallons size of tank is ok. I haven't gone into breeding them but they do seem easier than Amanos which require brackish water conditions when breeding.

Good luck.:)

could i also breed guppies in this tank with the shrimp also.(im doing it partly for food for my mudskippers)
In brackish water? I don't think so. Guppies just don't tolerate much salt as mollies do. If your tank is large, go with mollies. They are as prolific as the guppies but mollies are larger in size.

i will get a seperate aquarium for breeding, mostly for the fun of it but partially for the food source, on looked on a website and cherry shrimp were 6 or 7 bucks a piece and said very few have bred them, is this right?
I wouldn't say only a few have bred. A lot of fish enthusiasts have managed to breed them(mostly in the community tanks) yet only a few managed to raise the shrimps(applies only to those who breed them in the community tank).
