Dad texted me this morning and said that the house REALLY stank from the fish tank so I told him to take the shrimp out and have the water tested today. I told him that depending on the water test results we might do a 75% water change and just use pure ammonia instead of rotting shrimp >_>

That's too bad about the shrimp. I cycled with pure ammonia and it's not too hard. Have you planted the tank yet? That will make it cycle a lot faster.

Adastra, yes. The only things added to the tank were Prime, Stability, and raw shrimp in a panty hose completely submerged to the bottom of the tank.

kaythenewbie: Yes. See the link in my signature from when I cycled my 5g fishless with pure ammonia.

For cycling add some Stress Zyme every few days.

Why add stress zyme when there are no fish in the tank? I've done a perfect cycle fishless with ammonia just recently without extra products than ammonia, bacteria, and Prime...
