Thanks for your reply,
I did continue to feed the fish food, to keep the cycle going.
I'm not sure of the water hardness, but I've found out that Liverpool, being in the North West, has very soft water. I don't know whether this means Gh, kh, or both.
Regarding oxygenation, I have no air pump but do have a venturi on the filter. I had this below the water to reduce noise before I bought the shrimp, but it is now above the surface producing bubbles for aeration.
Test definitely showed no Nitrite (pure blue), but the ammonia was less definitive. I'm not at home right now but I'll retest it in about half an hour when I do get home.
Again, thanks for your help.
PS, I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I added new plants from Plants Alive to my main tank, too, and my amanos in there are fine ( they seem to be, anyway).
