Default What shrimp besides ghost shrimp are a good food source for axolotls?

So after upgrading their tank, I am considering using their old tank to breed shrimp. I really love tiger shrimp, cherry shrimp, etc., so I was considering breeding them for food. Are other dwarf shrimp just as nutritious as ghost shrimp?
Another quick question too, are ADFs compatible with shrimp? I love seeing a variety of species in a tank

I have always loved cherry shrimp. They are easy to breed and are cheap and axolotls will eat em! love your signature btw.

Do you keep them directly in the axolotl's tank or would they get wiped out faster than they could multiply, even with hiding places?
