Ammo should have gone higher at first. But all that matters is that when the ammo and nitrite are at 0 you are done. It will take 2 to 4 weeks.

I'm a newbie, but, be prepared for longer though. I started with 2 raw shrimp, then added lr a couple weeks later. Tomorrow I will be 6 weeks into my cycle - I've seen my ammo and trite spike but they are still present.
