Stop adding shrimp to the tank and remove what's left so the tank can complete cycling.

That is about the worst advice I've ever heard given by an lfs. Please check here to review anything they tell you in the future <g>.

Yeah, my info was WAY off. The levels were: pH 8.2, ammonia 1.0, nitrite 0.25, nitrate 10.

Ammonia and Nitrites should be at ZERO before you add anything live to the tank. Nitrates should be under 30 for fish and under 5 (0 would be better) for any kind of coral.
Looks like the cycle is moving forward. Keep testing and look for the ammonia to drop to zero while the nitrites rise...
