Poor practice and very cruel. would not suggest it.
I think a shrimp would be Ok, but if you are keeping the damsel, IMO you are pretty maxed out as far as fish.
Wait until you ammonia and nitrite are zero for a week or so, then add.

2" of fish per 10 gallons is the basic guidline. You can try a pair, its you call. will be overstocked technically, but may work.

I've purchased from lr.com If you plan on buying a a small amount you will save money from the lfs but if your adding much at all the shipping is still cheaper than the lfs, Most stores charge anywhere from $6-$9 a pound and that adds up quick, plus the lr.com rock is covered in coraline algae not to mention you get the free hitchikers, such as corals,shrimp,stars etc.
