how many shrimp can be kept in a 10 gallon because right now i have 3 and i want more but my LFS only sells them in groups of 10

I've got 12-15 in mine, and don't have issues.

Shrimp do have a bioload, but its very very very tiny.

thanks i just wanted to make sure i wouldnt overload my tank and i know some will pass away when they get to the new tank from stress or old age because thats what happened last time so it looks like i should be all clear to get more :)

You can have quite a few. They will do fine.
