Cross check the bottle, but as far as I know (not having this product at home) Prime removes ammonia, or better said it devolves it into another version of non-toxic stuff. Not sure casue I don't have it, but that could be why its screwing with your parameters?!

well i havent used any of the prime yet, anyway i got some household ammonia and added a little bit so ill do my next tests n see if it has risen, and then take it from there

edit just tested for ammonia and its gone through the rood, like towards 8.0, i only added the tiniest amount! lol, so add some bacteria stuff or just leave it to its own devices?

I have never seen any ammonia at all in my tanks, I have used stress zyme and tried to seed the tank with bacteria etc. Is this unusual? I have a proper testing kit with the liquids and test tubes and have tested positive for everythig else. Maybe your tank is already in the nitrite/nitrate stages and doesn't need the ammonia as Angel says.
