    no i have not topped off any water in fact my water level is 4-6 inches below the max level from the tank. i just did three tests .25 AMMO (used paper version), ZERO TRITES and 40ppm trates. i was unable to upload and insert the pictures for this.

    Top off with TREATED water, your ph could be fluctuating up and down (normal during a cycle).

    i have to let the refil water set 15 minutes with the dechlorinator i have on hand right? it's not seachem but it is a dechlorinator

    also should i be concerned about those high NITRATES? NO i didn't do a water change but they are concerning.

    waited 15+ minutes after dechlorinator to add the water to the tank to top off. used my fish net with the lights off mode to get as much of the hair algae i could see off the gravel and any loose floating hair algae after i topped off the water out of the tank. I think i got most of it. squished three pond snails today in the tank, but the third fell to the bottom of the tank as i tried to get it. If there are any more snails that died under the substrate i didn't see them at this time.

    Let me know if i missed anything.

    did a WC and cleaned the sides of my aquarium (not the filtration area) of the algae remains and the brown diatoms (there was enough brown diatoms on the tank walls to lead me to believe it's also contributing to the ammo reading and the water i pulled from under the substrate was completely black or very dark grey)). I pulled alot of black debris from under the substrate which leads me to think that either the substrate or the root tabs i had initially put into the aquarium are leeching ammonia/ creating a mass colony of diatoms. going to wait two more days to test ammo again but if it's still green it would either still be leeching ammo from substrate or the diatoms that are left. I didn't add anything back into the tank as far as plant ferts and the lights on time is still four hours from 10-2pm eastern. I refilled the tank with treated water with my dechlorinator.

    how many drops of prime did you say for a 5 gallon tank? I have eyedroppers that i got from walgreens that i use when getting testing water into the testing vials. I know that the makers of ammo lock said 10 drops for a five gallon tank, but i know prime requires less dosing. Can you advise how much i should be using per water change in the future?

    Get a medicinal syringe from your pharmacist (many times, they're free), or from a dollar store or Walmart. They're marked in milliliters (ML).

    Prime is dosed 1 ml/10G, so for a 5.5G tank, you would use 1/2 ML...personally, since the tanks are actually 5.5G instead of 5, I use a little more than half a ML when dosing my tanks, 3/4 ML or so.

    The medicinal syringes make it MUCH easier to dose dechlor, and they're handy to use when filling your test tubes with tank water, as well.
