Will nitrate still show up on test results after using Prime
 
I am using Prime water conditioner for my fishtank. Will the nitrates still show up on my test results even though the Prime has neutralised it? Many thanks for your time, Jane

hey Jane! Prime cant possibly neutralize the nitrates completely. The maximum dosage that you can add is five times as much as the normal dosage. Then if you do like a 60% water change it might go down to about 10 maybe less. Nitrates are not toxic as long as they stay bellow 20 just keep that in mind. Lowering it bellow that..

its tricky:|
