If you're still seeing ammonia then adding anything is a waste of money, especially shrimp. I'm not familiar with glass anemone so i will let someone chime in on that but don't add any animals to a cycling tank. Crushing/smashing/tearing them apart will likely lead to more of them. There are methods of injecting them with lemon juice, near boiling water or store bought compounds advertised as specifically for this pest. DONT TEAR THEM APART! You can also cover them with kalk.

aight. I wont add anything. I got AiptasiaX. But, how screwed am I if I did crush the little guy...? Even if it was the size of a ballpoint pen tip?
Depends on how it reacts in your tank. Could be a royal pain or it could be a small to non issue. The best thing is to get them when they are younger. You might to fight it for a while but with diligence you will get the issue resolved. Its all part of the new tank lottery!
