    Test in the morning and see if there is an ammonia spike.

    Isnt it too quick as i just did the water change so some ammonia should still be present since out the tap my water is about 1ppm of ammonia ? Im about to hit the gym ill test it when i get back. Do you think i should worry ? ive been reading that anything under a 50% i shouldt worry?

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Read this quote one more time.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    i always put prime in before i start filling tank back up and i get the temp just right on the water then pour the amount of prime in and start filling all done within 30 seconds if you had no spike that's great news i think some do it after but just to be safe i always add before
