But if you wait 24 hours it is okay to add something like Safestart?
    I think this is where you're understanding is confusing you. Locking up ammonia is NOT bad for bacteria.

    Ammonia gets converted to ammonium with Seachem Prime, which is harmless to fish but still consumable by BB.
    which means your cycle will be unaffected by water conditioners that neutralize ammonia.

    There are some medications that interact with these water conditioners, but you don't have to worry at all while cycling. Your ammonia test will still detect (ammonium) ammonia like it's there and change nothing for you except keep your fish safe :)
