Yeah, that look good!

I think shrimp are cute in the tank until I have to take them out....I had a bigger Amano shrimp that jumped out of the net. So when you acclimate them the first time to the tank, make sure you cover the net with your hand so they don't jump out and start crawling on the carpet but in the tank, they look fantastic! lol I just hate creepy crawly things where they can get at me

Same here, as long as they're not going to crawl on me its fine lol. I read that cherry shrimp sometimes escape the tank, even when the water's perfect. Should I just get one of those glass lids that leave no openings? Or should I be fine with a regular led tank lid with gigantic hob filter cutouts that has lots of room for them to escape (if I should be worrying about that)?

I think you'll be fine with the regular lid, just don't fill the tank up to the brim. I usually leave around half an inch below the black part or more. In my 10 gallon that's split for just the three boys, it's actually down an inch and a half but that was beacuse I didn't have any lid on it, just a light over top. Now I've got a glass canopy so it's fine, but I've never had a Betta or shrimp escape when I had a regular hood on it.

If you're really worried, you can use saran wrap and put that over the holes in the back and tape it down with scotch tape and voila, you've make your tank escape proof while still looking pretty good! haha
