IMO add nothing till the cycle is done... Why take a chance when not needed. Thats just me, snails and crabs can add up$$$ No need to add right away. Also no need to feed anything to the tank, you used shrimp and may have had some die of the lr so that is plenty
Sit back and wait it out your almost there why rush it when your so close. While your waiting to add stuff read up on proper acclimation for inverts and fish... Make yourself or buy a drip line and wait the extra week or two..
The last thing you want to do is kill the first critter you add to the tank.... This will make you think about "why did I get into this hobby"!!!!

I wasn't trying to rush anything - just curious about my trate numbers.

Tested last night, ammo ~.2 (looked about the same in daylight) and trite ~.05

Having said that....I did purchase 4 baby hermits (99 cents ea) and a turbo snail on Friday
They are all doing great, I can't believe the job the snail is doing! My plan was that if they are all still going strong this Friday to purchase 2 clowns (provided my water params are the same or better). Bad idea?
