General "How To" shrimp cycle page?

I am about to set up new tanks next week ... I have never used shrimp to cycle and would like to this time. I have NO idea how to do this and what to watch for. I always used fish before

Is there a "page" on our forum to read with the answers and steps I need, or someone kind enough to type it out for me LOL...

For what it is worth, after moving a few months ago, I used the shrimp method to cycle my 125 gal. Basically, I purchased two large tiger shrimp at the supermarket and tossed them into the tank and let nature take care of business. Note that the shrimps have to be "nature", uncooked or unprocessed. There was no odour I could smell. It's as eazy as it gets.
