I got my 20 gallon all set up today. I have a live plant to help the cycle, gravel from an established tank and a used seeded filter cartidge. If I add prime to the water, will it kill all the good bacteria I have in there? I was reccommended by an aquatics guy to start a fish-in cycle with two small sunburst platy's. The temp of the tank is at a safe level atm. Can I add them? And I need to condition the water with prime before I do...I just don't know if it's going to undo all the used seeded stuff I have in there. I know with tetra safe start you shouldnt use prime for like 24 hours after...is this the same way?
