Even if you could get your tank cycled in a couple days, I'd still recommend running things (adding ammonia for the bacteria) for 4-6 weeks before adding any shrimp. Even Neos.

Allows tons of surface bacteria/biofilm to grow, some algae to develop and creates a better environment for detrivores like shrimp.
