I would give ur tank atleast a month total while u regularly dose amminia. If ammonia and nitrite go to zero by the end of the day then u should do a large water change to remove nitrates from the tank and u should be good. Remember if the bacteria on the rock doesn't have ammonia as food than it will go away so don't let it sit forever after u have cycledbto add livestock.

The shrimp will rot away. Jason is suggesting you use pure ammonia from the hardware store.

I think a lot take it out and they had originally put it in a mesh bag. I don't know cuz I didn't do it. I'm believe in disingenuous ammonia
