I guess the tank is ready to go. I put a raw shrimp in yesterday to try and get an ammonia spike and today my ammonia level is .25 which is less than yesterday. Should I just take the shrimp out and start introducing a clean up crew?

It takes couple of days to get ammonia from shrimp. Leave it there for a week and if ammonia does not go up and you get high nitrate with no nitrite then you are good. Just replace half of water before adding fish.
