Question Funky!

So I'm doing the "Fish-less Cycle" Using Shrimp method to, guess what, cycle my tank. I haven't done any testing yet and its been about a week but the decaying shrimp smell is getting pretty potent in my house! My question is, the sticky says to do a water change at the end of the cycle. Is this a 100% change?

No, not 100%. If your nitrItes are zero and your ammonia are at zerothen you're cycled. I would just change 50%.
