newly cycled tank and freshwater shrimp

So my 37 gallon hexagon tank has finally finished cycling and im going to the LFS tonight for the first shoal of tetras or rasboras to start the stocking of the tank.............My question is how long should i wait to put in a bunch of freshwater shrimp?.............I have a 30 with red cherry shrimp in and 3 different types of tetras, but that tank was established for 2 years when i introduced the reds to that tank........From what i read, i should wait till the tank is established to put the shrimp in..............What is an established time?........a month?....2 months?....Like i said, this tank just finished cycling and all the parameters are correct and heavily planted...

Fishin Pole, which species of shrimps do you plan to get? What species of tetras did you get? If there appears to be enough algae food and microorganisms, that's how I call a tank established. It takes a few weeks before everything begins to thrive well. You can add your shrimps now.
