    I like the fact that Prime will detoxify nitrAtes and nitrItes, as well as ammonia

    No other water conditioner that I know of neutralizes all 3 of these toxins, for a period of time while the tank cycles.

    We don't even know the trIte and trAte levels of the tank yet.

    I advise the OP to purchase one of these, ASAP, from whatever source they choose, online is always cheaper than local fish store (LFS).

    This test kit is a must for FW fishkeeping, IMO

    I have a master kit. Sorry about that. My results after the change were ammonia:0 nitrites:0 (very light blue) and honestly I didn't test nitrates

    The label has directions, believe a cap is for treating 50 gallons so half a cap would be fine.
    75g- Plecos, Rainbowfish, Edlers, Espei, Gouramis, Cory, Loaches, Amano, and misc.
    Two 5.5g- Shrimp tanks; one with 4 chili rasbora & Bloody Mary and second with Blue Dream shrimp
    5.5g- Rescue female betta Lucky Star
    20L- Rescue betta Tony Stark and pygmy corys
    20L- Pygmy cory, 2 vampire/rock shrimp, ember tetras and female guppies

    75g:
    Nat's 20L Tanks
    5.5 G Shrimp Tanks

    Get yourself a few medicinal syringes, many times your pharmacy will give them to you for free, or you can buy a pack at the dollar stores or Walmart, very inexpensive.

    These syringes are usually measured in increments of milliliters; the dosage for Prime is 1 ml per 10 gallons of water, so for a 20G tank, you would add 2 ml of Prime.*

    I like to be as accurate as possible when dosing my tanks with anything.

    *PS If you use a siphon to do water changes, treat for the entire volume of the tank; if you use buckets, treat the bucket amount before adding to the tank.

    That's another option.

    But, I like the syringes, they are useful for other things too, such as drawing tank water samples to add to the API test tubes, helps to fill them accurately to the line.

    They're useful in dosing ammonia when doing a fishless cycle, as well.

    Big water change is in order.

    For the nitrAte test, be certain you shake test solution #2 like mad before adding to the test tube.

    I'm using a siphon to pull out then a bucket to fill up.

    Honestly I guesstimated as I don't have anything exactly to measure.

    But my idiot self may have done something very stupid yesterday.

    I used my siphon to pull out dirty water then put in clean. Using 2 different buckets. But I just thought about I may have just put the ammonia back in by doing that
