I haven't been using Prime because the TSS specifically says using any ammonia locking products during those two weeks will make it ineffective. Have you used TSS & Prime together successfully?

The Prime/ammonia-complex (molecule) can be used by the bacteria. Always use Prime with water changes, and daily while cycling.

Tetra has to say that stuff for legal reasons.

Well I decided to stick it out and appears the tank is just about cycled. Ammonia levels are back to at or below .25ppm and Nitrates are at 30ppm. I don't think ammonia levels ever quite reached .50ppm and both fish appear happy and healthy. Now I would just like to see that ammonia level test a nice bright yellow! Thanks for all the advice.
