Prime's effect on the fish-in cycle
 
I was wondering, do you think that using Prime might have adverse effect on cycling a tank?

I have about 6 fish in my 50 gallon right now that is almost cycled. The Nitrites have been spiking for the past 10 days or so, and I have been putting in some Prime simply to keep my fish alive! By it detoxifying the nitrites, is it not letting my nitrites turn into nitrates, completing the cycle?

Thanks for any input in advance.

Prime will NOT affect your cycle, it will help reduce the adverse effects caused by high ammonia and Nitrite in your tank.

Use it each time you do a water change.

yeah thats me mate, prime is excellent, highly concentrated so you only need a small amount in the tank, works well getting rid of chlorinate, chlorides and heave metals, also will give some healthy bacteria to the water but not very much of it, Prime is one of the best products you can buy I highly recommend it
