It is best to wait a little while before adding your next creatures. Slow and steady wins the race. Corals generally do not have a high bio load, so IMO
you can add them a bit more frequently than fish. Whenever you add a new fish, make sure to check your parameters and make sure they are okay.
As for your Peppermint Shrimp; Mine is very secretive also, so I wouldn't fret.
I am happy to answer any further questions if you have any.
