Yes red cherry shrimp and cories do get along, however the cories will eat baby shrimp. As for the substrate its really a matter of personal preference. IMO gravel (rocks) is better than sand for bigginers.

No but I know that cories and cherry shrimp can coexist. The main deference between gravel and Sand is that gravel IMO is easier to clean than sand. Will the tank be planted.

Sand isn't any harder. It actually takes less work. You don't have to push the gravel vacuum into the sand. Just hover over the sand bed and it picks up the debris. I would say you should have sand with them because the sand is preferred by cory cats. And they can live together.

IME gravel is not hard to keep clean as long as you do a weekly gravel cleaning using a gravel vac. IME sand is hard to keep clean because you can't remove all the fish waste from the top of it without sucking it up.

How do you do it. Is it possible that I have a stronger siphon.

What are you using? Just hover about it. Don't touch the sand with the gravel vacuum.
