Definitely cycled. Not only did I do a fishless cycle which tested out ok; but before adding the shrimp I took a sponge out of an established tank and swapped with this one. I'm actually concerned...

Not something I'm very familiar with; but if it showed up after being moved to a new tank it surely could just be stress related. I'd stick with frequent water changes for now and just keep a good...

Tubifex worms are also called sewer worms. I'm not sure any come from an environment free of parasites. There are lots of debates as to whether or not the freeze drying process actual gets rid of...

You're interpreting it perfectly. As everyone else has said, its really just a nicety for your own sake. Once you get a co2 level that works in your tank (be it by testing ph, using a drop checker,...
