I have heard that ghost shrimp will eat fry. So I decided that they are out for my idea of a fry/shrimp tank. Is this also true for cherry shrimp? I know I could get filter feeding shrimp and be ok, but i want one that will reproduce so I can send the smaller ones to my community tank for snacks

I don't think cherries will touch your fry... they feed primarily on algae. Mine have shown no interest whatsoever in the guppy fry that are in the tank with them.

They reproduce well in an aquarium too. The females carry the yellow eggs under their tails until they hatch into little shrimplets :)
