I think you should cycle with ur light off. That will help u with the algae problem. Just a thought

Ok so my shrimp is basically a glob of gel, there is nothing of the shrimp left, it has become a mush. Can I remove it?

Go ahead and remove it. I am sure your cycle is underway. Maybe add a couple piches of flake food every few days to keep it going.

Ok I just did a test.

Nitrite 0
Nitrate 5
Ammonia 0
pH 8

How am I looking? Another week maybe? Then maybe add a cleanup crew? Crap has settled all over my powerhead plumbing...need something to eat it off.
