If you have ammonia or nitrite you need to be doing more water changes. Unless you tap water is really bad, I'd use some to get rid of the ammonia. I see more shrimp problems from water that is too soft rather than too hard. But, hardness can raise pH, and ammonia is much more toxic with high pH, so you need to be even more careful. Do you have plants in this tank? Some fast growing stems or floating plants would help with the ammonia and give the shrimp places to hide.
