Hi there.

I did add biospira, which has the bacteria, before using the prime. I hope I haven't damaged the colonies, as I'm still getting extremely high nitrite/nitrate readings on my water tests. The seachem website says that prime doesn't destroy ammonia, nitrates or nitrites but just detoxifies them and that the biological filter will continue to break them down. My test results are supporting that at least for now, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. Also, I really think the crashing ph has something to do with all of this. At this point, could I do a massive water change and add fish to continue the cycle or would that be too dangerous??
