Well, I have a thermometer to measure the water in my bucket so i can verify the correct temp before adding it. So adding that conditioner to the water works within 5 minutes? Has it had a chance to mix?

Also, are you recommending using the vaccuum to siphon the water out while cleaning the gravel like I did yesterday, or just scooping the water out?

i would use the vac to be sure your getting any left over food and such... if you add the prim to the bucket as you fill it will mix while the bucket fills.... ;)

Ok great, just did the water change. How long should I wait before testing the ammonia levels again? Do I need to wait for the water to mix around properly?
