Hi I was planning to buy some RCS and put them in with my goldfish tank but the temp is around 50 degrees. Is that way to cold for them? Will they die? I was planning to put them in a breeders net first.

They are kept in my 3 season room which is quite cold. So its fine if the temp is around let say 40-50 degrees? even if I had some small red cherry shrimps?

I keep them outside, kept them even under ice, so low temps are no problem. (breeding stops though). The low temp. will not kill them, your goldfish will!.

Cherry Shrimp thrives in higher temps and low temps could stress and will disrupt any chance of populating. As well as goldfish will eat anything that will fit in their mouth, including shrimp.
