Aquarium cycling

Ok the mass death of damsels stopped after my last post. I have one lone survivor left in there (Murphy) and he's been thriving. It's been about 2 weeks since the others died so I'm thinking I'll wait a couple more before adding anymore. Should I still add the shrimp like you guys talked about or should I just leave it be the way it is.

you need to test your water for ammonia and nitrite, nitrate now and not think about adding any more fish until your sure the cycle is done.
Have you tested the water if so what are the numbers..
Do some reading on the site also and learn about the hobby beofre you add anymore fish to the tank. remember damsels are mean fish and if you plan on adding any other fish there may be issues....
