Is it okay to have a peppermint shrimp in a 3 week cycled tank to kill aiptasia?

I'm already using Aiptasia X to kill them but I have Soo many little ones that I can't really get to and now I think some are growing on my glass >:/ I was thinking of maybe getting 2 peppermint shrimp to get the job done. I know they may not make it but I would really appreciate their help and their ammonia would be great as well what do you guys think?

Why not wait until the tank is cycled to add the shrimp? Should be soon. I'm not a big fan of hoping something will survive. I'd wait until you are pretty sure they would make it.
