slow cycle?

I put 1 shrimp in my brand new 40g SW tank 2 weeks ago. The ammonia shot up to 4ppm in about 6 days but hasn't shown any signs of decline since. Is there something more I need to do? it's just kind of hovering there.

NM fellas. Thanks for trying to help but my ammonia just started to plummet. Don't worry though. I'm sure I'll be back with more questions soon enough.
