Default Where to put new cherries

Where to put incoming shrimp?

So I bought about 20 shrimp that are waiting for me at home. but I'm having a dilemma of where I should add them. Here are my current options:
20 gallon high heavily planted riparium with the following inhabitants:
Female betta
5 Flagfish
Pepper Cory
3 cherry barbs
BN Pleco
Assorted snails (assassin, <abbr title="Malaysian Trumpet Snail, Multi Tank Syndrome, or Mineralized Top Soil">MTS, Ramshorn)
I just escaped and put in a lot of moss and a piece of Cholla wood on top of the new manzanita and other stuff.
2.5g Jarrarium
Lots of moss and a few pieces of wood. Only 2 cherries (both female )
Ramshorn snail family
The following aren't really options:
1 gallon Jarrarium
Heavily planted with 8 cherries and at least one of the females had lots of babies!
Ramshorn snails
.7 gallon snail Jarrarium
.4 gallon snail Jarrarium
Do I split them between the 20 and 2.5? Do I put them all in the 20? I'm just worried about my betta, (or flagfish) going rogue and taking out the shrimp.
Disclaimer: 7 of my cherries started in the 20 gallon and there was only one death. (less planted then). Inhabitants were the same minus the 4. juvie flagfish and the betta. So at least Betsy the flagfish wasn't a shrimp killer.
I appreciate your help!

I'm No expert on cherries but if your new ones are really small then some of them might still get eaten in your big tank... But if they are not tiny then I would add most of them to the 20 gal and some in the 2.5 gallon that way you don't have them all in one place in case they start disappearing. I think the .7 gallon might work for breeding too if you add a couple in there
