There are 2 possible explanations why you have same readings for the past 4 days. It's either you don't have any bacteria on your rocks yet or your readings are false. With such high ammonia, there should be nitrite readings if your rocks are really live when your first got them. As I mentioned before, no water change until your nitrate is high. Otherwise, you are prolonging the cycling process.

I have had some changes from the last time I have checked my tank. My ammonia is (8.0) while my nitrite is now (0.25) while nitrate is still 0. Another thing I noticed is around the net there seems to be some slime and I took some off its kind of heavy any reason to be concerned. Click image for larger version

You can get rid of the shrimp now. I don't know what the slime is, but I wouldn't worry about it.

You may need another more week before ammonia goes down. Nitrite will then reach its peak and swing downward while nitrate will go up. However, in the pic I see base rocks. It may take longer without seeding with LR.

If you don't have a powerhead your tank will not be able to strive

You need more surface agitation. BB needs those oxygen to strive.
