Can't help directly but adding the prime probably did more than the water change... not that you shouldn't have changed the water, I did for he same sort of spike, but the prime has detoxified the nitrite for a day or two which will help the fish. I didn't treat the water, did a 75% change day 1, a 30% change day two and the nitrites disappeared on their own after that.
How long has the tank been going? Never mind, about 8 weeks.
When you cycled the tank, did you get a nitrite spike and if so about when? when did you add fish? Nevermind.... 4 weeks in.
If you added all the fish at once I don't think this is to be unexpected, it will pass, just change and treat the water until it does.
Can you post a whole tank shot or just put one in your aquarium profile?
