The ammonia clear I found had ammonium hydroxide and surfactant. I read the surfactant is no good. Thx for the link

Found the right stuff removing shrimp, water change, dosing and testing.

Dosed 4ppm ammonia after removing shrimp and 40% water change.
Tested after 26 hrs, ammonia 0, nitrite 5+ ppm, nitrate 40-80 ppm. Should my nitrites have cleared out in 24 hrs?

Still have trites means you're not cycled yet... Wait for them to go back down to zero. I'm not entirely sure you have to but I would dose with ammonia again and keep testing until both ammonia and trites are at zero. After that happens then do a large water change. If I'm wrong here hopefully someone else will chime in.

I agree with Dizzle on this one, I would dose again and look for 0 on ammonia and nitrites in 24 hrs or so. As far as I've read and studied, nitrite is more toxic to the fish than ammonia is. I'd want it down to zero in my tank.

I have read they are deadly as well. I was just unsure if they should have been gone in a day. But better safe than sorry, so ill dose it again
