On the topic of shrimps

I have got a 50l (11 UK Gallon tank) Now I have 4 neon tetras and 2 glowlight tetras... The tank has been hanging around and has been on for about a week and a half... now I added my fish recently (I understand I shouldn't have added that much fish but it was cheaper getting 6 that 4 so.....) When can I get shrimps that is the thing I am looking forward to getting the most maybe a little Sunkist shrimp a could of cherries you know so what do you think?

I recently did something similar with a 57litre tank. (see the photography forum for some details if your interested)

I assume your tank is cycled? Does it have any plants? The shrimp will certainly need some hiding places if you have fish.

I added 12 cherry shrimp to my tank after about 3 months of it being cycled. Be very careful if you are adding them to a tank with fish. You wouldn't want them to be a very expensive meal for the fish.
