aquaman888 Posted December 9, 2009 Share Posted December 9, 2009 I have cycled a tank 10G for over month. Went to LFS last weekend parameters are perfect. Initially loaded the tank with tap water then Seachem "Prime" on day 0. Since then I have been adding top off water directly from the tap without "PRIME", I realize this is horrible. Last night I topped off and then added 1ml of "PRIME" directly to the tank (10G measurement is 1ml). The tank has 13 pounds LR and a couple of snails. Am I screwed? How do I fix it? Will the fact that I added the Prime last night undo my cycling / i.e kill off some of the beneficial bacteria in the live rock? I badly need advice as to 1. how bad is my situation 2. how do I fix it -big water change, small water change, start agin from scratch? 3. what is a good system for top off and dechloring water, since the "PRime" is highly concentrated measuring the correct does for a 10G is difficult, it is even harder for a 3G water change. 4. Is there a cheap easy portable ro/di system that might be worth investing in, oh yeah that can attach to the tap no pumps no plumbing please. hoping to hear from you soon, becuase I am freaking out a bit. Thanks. Link to comment
