You could purchase or construct a net breeder and place that in your established tank, and put the shrimp in there until the new tank is cycled (at least 1 month). This way might be less work than monitoring a bucket full of shirmp around the clock. The babies and adults need food, if they are in an established tank they can pick on the algae and biofilm. However, they will eat just about anything, just keep it in moderation.
