No leave the shrimp in and let it decay. That's what is causing your ammonia levels to spike. Turn up the heat too, this will help it go through its cycle a bit faster. What is your nitrate at?

Too low for a good reading... Nitrites at zero.

Let it sit over night, if you still have very low readings, your looking good bro. Are you by any chance running a skimmer?

No... I decided I'll buy a skimmer only if there's too much foam on the water... Does a HOB skimmer make a lot of noise ? That'll be a problem if it do too much noise...

A skimmer isn't for foam on top of your water... It's designed to pull out excess nutrients and waste from your tank so your bb isn't overwhelmed and the fish waste can be disposed. Hob skimmers vary, it just depends on the brand I guess.

If you only plan on 2 clowns and don't over feed you may not need one. If you plan on adding corals I would recommend one. Some skimmers can be a bit noisy.

Plan to put 2 clown, and probable a cleaning crew, followed by probably more fish/shirmp.

And for sure, with the light that I have, that I'll put very much corals.

I went to the Reef store, I bought Swc skimmer mini hot, 1hrs ago, I'm impatient to plug it on my tank
