Hi Ad, and welcome to the forums :) .

What kind of shrimp, more Amanos? Generally speaking, shrimp have a low bioload, but they are also very sensitive to poor water conditions, usually more so than your fish. So IMO, your tank sounds to have enough life, though a few more algae-eaters wouldn't add all that much more bioload.

As you probably already know, what your tank can sustain depends on things such as size/amount of fish, how much you feed, how well your filtration is and how long your tank has been set up, etc., so hard to give a straight answer.

I would not recommended adding some of the bigger shrimp such as Bamboo shrimp, they do better in a larger tank.
