get a large container and run an airstone. If your ambient temps drop below 60, add a heater. If you can drop in a seeded filter, even better.

Fortunately, Shrimp have very little bioload but they still feed on bacteria in the tank. Water from an established tank will carry bacteria. siphon only from the top of the tank.
