1g is a tiny tank... but why not.
You do need to cycle your tank (look up 'fishless cycle') before adding any shrimp/fish in. You can and should add plants from the get go. I personally would use a Marino ball, some moss, some small plants. Look up 'chola wood' - it will be liked by your shrimp also.

Once the tank is cycled, I would add about 5 cherry shrimp. When they start breeding I would sell/give away the babies once they grow up a bit.
