I'm sorry- but it's hard to read your posts. Could you use correct spelling so it isn't hard to decipher your posts?
Tossing in a shrimp will begin the cycle. You will have to test the water for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Once you get 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and the nitrate test shows a result between 5 and 40 you do a big water change and you're ready for fish. That's called fishless cycling. Fish in cycling is different. You would probably have to do daily water changes to keep the ammonia and nitrites from killing your fish.
