Oh. Well I dont know about that. You still have nitrites, even if you pwc they will still come back i would think since you just started. Were you gonna stock shrimp when your done? lol They look kinda creepy to me. hehe

Hmm sounds good but I'd get some more opinions. I wouldnt want to screw up a cycle thats only a week and half in. But it's your tank you can try it if you want.
I'd like to see what others have to say on this and what they would do. I'm by no means an expert or even close. lol

I think you should wait a bit. see what others have to say and if the majority say its a good thing I'd go tomorrow and get one. Thats how I do it, I ask, sort through the answers and pick what the majority says as long as it sounds within reason.

Just looking out for ya! you're my fish buddy. I give the same advice that I would follow as if it were my tank.
Good luck i'll check in later and see what the word is.

I agree Cary. I wouldn't put a live shrimp in. I would wait until the trite is at zero. But here again, I am no expert so I'm going off what I've read and learned here
