You would wait a month to see if you have a spike in ammo or nitrite again

you're supposed to keep the shrimp in until you see not trace of ammonia or nitrites, as this way you know the rock is doing its job breaking down the ammonia through the stages of the nitrogeon cycle.

you can still even leave the shrimp in there because it will eventually break down and get turned into nitrates

The same time the next day is what I would do, and then if all params are balanced buy one of the hardier fish in like 1 or 2 days. A clown or damsel would be good but damsels are aggressive. Then you could buy your clean up crew.
