What is "wet rock"?? lol

If you meant "live rock" and if you have enough than don't worry about taking the shrimp out.

I thought you could do all the water changed you wanted during cycleing? Or that just fish in cycleing? And one more thing, what do you mean "dead shrimp" is that a type of shrimp or are they actually dead shrimp?

Fishless cycle = noooo water change
Fish-in cycle = frequent water changes

Dead shrimp = cocktail shrimp from grocery store

Water changes during a fishless cycle would dramatically slow or completely stop the cycle process
