How long should I leave the shrimp in the tank?

Hi guys
I started the Cycling process about 3 days before I received my LR by using 3 shrimp from the market, it's been in there for about 8 Days. When should I remove them? Tank = 120 gal,50 lbs LR, 50 lbs BR & 3" of aragonite substrate.

When you read 0 for ammonia and nitrite and see a nitrate spike. Then take them out and do a big water change. There is no set time.
