No. Anything that can rot works.
Normally frozen shrimp hasn't been cooked, so it is raw.

It will only take about a capful of pure ammonia to get to 4ppm. Just add little at a time til you get to 4ppm.

If I'm not able to get the ammonia, how many shrimp for cycling a 90 gallons should I put in?

Ok, two it is! Here we go again! Hmmmm.......could it be that the reason it's taking so long to get a spike is that I am cycling with base rock 85lbs, 80lbs of dry sand and 10lbs of live sand?
