Most fish are sensitive to nitrite in the water. I would try and get that closer to <0.5ppm before I added them. A few water changes should help to drive those down.

I've never used a powerhead in a shrimp tank so maybe someone else can chime in on that. I wouldn't think it is a huge issue, but maybe it can be. You could get one of the small ehiem surface...

I think that is a suitable stocking of community fish. I don't foresee any compatibility issues there. I would start with stocking the harlequins. They are a very hardy fish and none of the other...
