check your parameters, could be a protein or ammonia, if no kit to test, do a water change, you may need to do a few over the next few days.

In the case of ammonia, do I want to do a change if its still cycling?

I would, shrimp are sensitive to ammonia, however I don't know much a shrimp-in cycle. From my understanding shrimp do not thrive in new tanks, but I could be wrong.


EDITED - you said sump, I read shrimp. yea its time for me to go to bed. Maybe no water change then, you don't want to interfere with the cycle process.

Did you just add water conditioner? The new replacement water always bubbles up when I add water conditioner

I did add a water clarifier, but that would have been two days ago now
