Stocking a new tank

I added two Chromis last week and have read that fish should be added slowly, monthly. Is the same true for inverts and corals? I was looking to add a small clean up crew soon

Inverts and corals have a small bioload in the grand scheme of things. You can add some if things are stable, but keep in mind that you don't need a clean up crew if you have good filtration and aren't overfeeding. They will simply starve.

To be honest I don't feed to much. One frozen cube lasts me a week at the minute. Will a shrimp or two be okay? It's them I'm after mainly as they look cool

I don't see why not if things are ok. Just make sure you drip acclimate them for a long time. Parameter shock easily kills shrimp.

...And feed them. Make sure you see them eat. In a new system with very little fish, there's nothing to eat, as stated. They will take meaty foods right out of your hand once they settle in.
