Didn't do the shrimp . But you don't have mush rock. I have a 310gal with 258 lb of rock and 200 lb of sand. Just let it sit for six weeks did the water tests all 0 all was still 8 and cl was 400. I now dose morning and night of alk to keep it at 9. That's 40 a day. And I like big tanks. Here's a pic of my leather doing great.

Fish mania you need another shrimp in there. You're ammonia needs to spike higher.

And if you can, get more rock. Live or base.

Good start though.

And liberty you are in a whole different league, great tank!!!!

And you might want to shorten the pick up on your filter so it doesn't suck up and sand.
