I keep my shrimp with my bettas and other fish at 80F. In that particular tank, they started with about 10, and now I'm up to about 70, so I'd say they breed well enough at 80F. :p

Cherries are really lovely and breed very well, so they are a great starter shrimp. The next level up in terms of difficulty is probably Crystal Reds, which are even prettier, but I did not manage to breed. :( However, in a 10 gallon they would probably do very well (I only had a 3 gallon).

Just saying they are more likely to breed at slightly lower than 80 temps.

So after setting up my RCS tank with gravel substrate I got all kinds of extra tank bugs, one being planaria. I read planaria will harm baby shrimp so I removed the gravel and any planaria I see each day. Plus the amount of poop that goes into the gravel was hazardous for my 2.5 in terms of ammonia and nitrite. Keep that in mind because I really didn't know until it happened.
