are cherry shrimp OK for the fry tank

I just won an auction on aquabid for some "Guppy Grass" the seller offered to throw in some assasin snails or cherry shrimp or yellow shrimp.

Is it safe and should I use any of these for my fry breeding/fry tank.

I have never had assasin snail-but the shrimp either the red cherry or the yellow color morph are fine in the fry tank. I have never had any problems with the shrimp bothering either the eggs or fry unless the fry was weak and near dead or dead-same with eggs-they will eat the fungus or bad eggs-but that is what you want them to do....well...at least that is what I want mine to do.

Since I spawn and rear fry using a more natural method-everything in the tank has a job of sorts
