Can I put Cherry Shrimp in with Ghost and Amano Shrimp?

I have been thinking of adding some different shrimp species to my tank. I currently have some ghost and amano shrimp, but was thinking of possibly adding some cherry shrimp or bee shrimp to add some color to the bottom.

Be careful, because the larger ghost shrimp may attack the cherry shrimp.
That's what I am worried about . I might just try and rehome the ghost shrimp or just set up a 10 gallon with them.

Ghost shrimp will eat baby cherry shrimp, but they shouldn't kill the adults.

Make sure not to mix colors of the same species, because they interbreed, and the young turn brown, instead of a real color.
