Ammonia Rising....sounds like a title of a movie

Well my Ammonia is maxed out in my tank.....how long should I keep the dead shrimp in it?? Until my ammonia levels reach zero?? Looks like its brewing pretty nice so far...cant wait to put my Clowns back in.

Back in?

Keep the shrimp in until your cycle is done. You're looking for 0 Ammonia & 0 Nitrites. Then do a 20% water change to reduce the Nitrates and add your first fish. Just make sure you add fish slowly like one every 3 to four weeks. Or 2 if their small.
