Dose another shrimp?

I'm in day 10 of my cycle and my parameters are:

Ph-8.0
Ammonia-0ppm
Nitrite-.4-.5ppm
Nitrate-<100ppm

My question is, the shrimp that I had put in day 1 has pretty much dissolved and I've had the same amount of trites for about 4 days. Should I put in a new shrimp to keep dosing ammonia?
Keep in mind that I have 105lbs of LR in a 90g

You're already done with the ammonia into nitrite cycle so there's not really a need to. You could if you wanted though.

Can you verify that nitrate reading? I think the <100ppm is a typo?

No, no typo. The salifert only goes to 100ppm but the liquid in the test tube looks like an even a deeper red than what on the ppm chart. Just slightly though.

Why did you think typo?

You did say "less than" 100 based in the sign.

I'd do a 50% + water change now. You're not cycled yet, but very high nitrates can stall your cycle as it kills the BB.
