I would wait a month or two to be safe. Shrimp are very sensitive to change and new tanks have alot of ups and downs in the beginning.

I think better safe than sorry...

Cheers
Steve

Is this a live shrimp for keeping or the shrimp to start the "fishless" cycle? Just wondering.

LOL, probably the cycle . If that's the case then you should have put the raw shrimp in shortly after setting it up to innitiate the ammonia.


Cheers
