I am going to provide you with the link to the guide to cycling a tank from here, not because you dont know how to cycle, but in the article it explains the details of the shrimp use for a cycle. Basically the shrimp is in a bio bag or nylon to avoid the mess, and the shrimp breaks down causing ammonia, which turns to nitrite, and then to nitrate (as I am sure you know that part).

Anyways...here is the link...
