Re: How Long Before Prime Reduces Nitrites?
Thank you for the prompt, and thorough reply. I realize that the Prime is just a fix for an already dangerous situation and that I need a good bio-cycle for ongoing maintenance, but I was not aware of your bio colonizing products. Thank you for that. I will pick them up after work.
I am also very glad to know that my Quick Dip test strips may still show high nitrite levels even though they may not be toxic. I have African cichlids, and I was in the process of stocking the aquarium when I stopped because of nitrite levels. Now, I need to stock (or overstock) the tank to reduce aggression.
I found out that the product, Cycle has only 3% bacteria in it and is mostly a sodium chloride "saline" solution. It is no wonder it was not having any affect.
