Question How long to acclimate shrimp?

I want to add cleaner shrimp to my tank so on Saturday I went and picked one up. I placed the shrimp in a plastic cube with a rock, air pump, air stone, and all the water that came in the bag. This all went into the tank so that the water in the cube would match my tanks temp. On Sunday I started using a medicine dropper to add tank water to the cube. After a few hours of adding water I started exchanging it by removing a dropper full of water from the cube everytime I added one.

So, it's 0 dark 30 Monday morning and I'm at work surfing the Net. When I get home I plan on continuing with the medicine dropper water transfers. How long do I need to do this before the shrimp should be suitably acclimated to my tank?
