I've had a jumbo shrimp decaying in my tank for 9 days already and have yet to see any ammonia. I had rock in it for about to weeks already but just added 4lbs of live on saturday.do you think I did something wrong?

What size tank we talking and describe the rock. If the rcok is established and cured, it may very well absorb the ammonia as it'll never show up.

Test for nitrite and nitrate and tell us what you get.

I'll test as soon as I get home. As for the rock... I first bought some rock that a friend had in his tank but the rocks had been out of water for 3 weeks so I'm sure there was nothing live about them. I just recently added 4lbs of live on saturday to see if it would help my tank out. I have a 29g.
