Once or twice a week would even be fine. If just the shrimp, I would use sinking pellets. Much better chance of feeding and less chance of waste.

Parasites are what you need to be concerned about primarily when leaving the tank fallow. Velvet, flukes, brooklynella, turbellarian worms and such that need a fish host in order to complete their life cycle to name a few.
