Ladies and Gents:
I'm about a week into cycling a new 5gal tank. As of yesterday, ammonia was just about 8.0ppm, and I pulled the shrimp out. Nitrite tested at 0. Should I have taken the shrimp out? I was under the impression (there I go thinking again) that leaving the shrimp in too long can present a new set of problems.
Reading some of the past posts, it appears that when Nitrite shows up, it will need a source of ammonia to keep the process moving along. Do I need to add another shrimp then?
I thought I had this straight.....any advice is greatly appreciated!
