I would let Shrimp breed first. Some Killis are great hunters.

Yes killi's can be quite aggressive, just a heads up. I once had a pair of aphysemion gardneri in a tank with some pseudomugil furcatas. I did this because my gf was changing up tanks, and needed a place for her killi's. In one night the killis managed to bite the tailfins of all my furcatas straight off. (They grew back fcourse). But these fish are definitely hunters!

Yes I added some pygmy cories and some cherry shrimp for now. I am thinking to add a pair of splendid, clowns, or australe killis- but not in a hurry. Waiting for more plants and everything to grow out. Maybe some Badis??? I know there isn't too much i can put in there without shrimp being eaten. Here is an update Click image for larger version

The only thing I would've done differently would be to let the shrimp breed up more, before you added the fish. The shrimp will still breed but the population will grow a lot more slowly with fish in the tank.

But otherwise very good stocking choices 👍

No Killis just pygmy cories that are smaller than shrimp. Does that still affect the breeding
