Had the exact same thing going on. It was just air and the cycling of the tank.

completed cycle in about 2 weeks, sculpt the rock a bit, did a gravel vac and changed 95% water, not sure if that would cause the tank to restart cycle. Will test again tmr.

did a water 95% change to remove nitrate, no sign of ammonia and nitrite spike, reading is perfect now and the tank is ready to go =)

Downgraded from a 10 gallon tank, these 45 shrimps are now in a 1 gallon tank, it does not feel overcrowded and most of them are hanging out under the rock.

And some tiny dots of green algae starts to show on the rock, can't be seen in the pic.
