I only have Red Cherries in my tank and they're OK. I think someone here mentioned that not all shrimp like EC, though. Better research a bit :)

I had issues when I seriously overdosed but it was fine at normal dosing levels.

I dose a carbon suplament in my shrimp tank (daily recomanded dose, but one day a week lol) and use ferts with no problems, although you should watch out for your apple snails with ec or similar.
My invert and otto tank varies from 20'c to 28 during the summer (not a great idea to run at 28 if you can avoid it though). 18-25 is the usual breeding temperature with 24 being the best (IMO)
