To shrimp or not to shrimp. That is the question?

Hiya, do I need to have stopped doing daily water changes before I can add shrimp and nerite snails? There are no ammonia or nitrite left in the water column between water changes. I keep cherry successfully in my other tank. But I do a 50% water change ever other day. On this tank I'm still doing as much as I can manage every day. Thanks in advance! :)

If you're doing 50% WC every day the composition of the tank water will be pretty consistent and close to tap water (plus ferts etc.). Drip acclimate when you move the Cherries and Nerites in and you'll be fine.
@Karmicnull thank you for this. It's probably closer to 80% per day. I will double check their water requirements :)
