Don't worry, mine is turning weird as well, I'm confused, whether I should remove my shrimp or not and my ammonia never spiked up

my ammonia never spiked but im cycling with live rock and not shrimp. I would think you should leave the shrimp in until your nitrites hit zero.

Yeah I think it's cause I have the cured LR and I never see any article cycling with cured LR and stuff, so now I got mixed, but I'm already somehwere in the middle, so might as well continue I guess until the shrimp decompose and gone...

Oh yeah I just realized yours never spiked either.
