It just appears from the picture that the rocks are covered with algae. That would indicate higher than optimal nutrient levels.

Well when we got the tank it hadn't been cleaned in awhile we did take out a lot of algae but left some for the shrimp to eat. However they don't seem to be eating all thy much. Do I suggest to clean it all out?

Shrimp don't eat much algae, if any. What I would do is keep the water clean. get on a weekly partial water change regimen and feed reasonably for a while. The algae will slowly disappear.
You can feed as little as two or three times a week with no ill effects.
