Just leave it in there till you go to bed for the night. Then take it out. Test the water tonight, you should have very high spikes in everything. After a day or two (after the shrimp is out of the tank) the smell will go away. Test the water again, if everything is down to normal test levels, you will be good to go. Test the salinity too, very important..
The filter and everything is running now, right?? It should be..

Took the shrimp out tonight. Just wanted to know how long I should wait to see the right results, zero across the board.
