       Hey Mike, nice tank... I'm starting my first shrimp tank too.. mine has been set up for a week. How long did you cycle and how did you cycle? 

  Thanks, TFC

Just give the tank time. The cycling  process usually takes six to eight weeks. After about eight weeks, your ammonia and Nitrite levels should be acceptable, and you can add shrimp. Do not add shrimp until the ammonia and Nitrite levels have both dropped to zero.
