Everything raven is saying is true.

Except the idea that 5 shrimp will generate a bioload that will produce an ammonia spike. This might be true if you are trying to keep them in 5 ounces of water...

This was good right up until here. Please remember that once the ammonia is processed by the bacteria. NitrIte is produced. Keep feeding the tank ammonia until both the ammonia and nitrIte is gone....

Just throw it in your tank and do a water change whenever it bugs you. As MSG said, it can take months.
