Prime Affecting Nitrite Readings

tuggythetugboat

Yesterday I was getting 0 nitrite before adding prime and then 0.25 after. Today I just tested and got .25 nitrite and then added prime and got 0. I heard about API not being accurate for Ammonia but not for nitrite.

My fish are acting completely fine aswell. Just added them via drip acclimation and am also turned my CO2 on today. Does anyone else have proof that Prime affects nitrite? Every forum I've seen, people strongly disagree with the fact that Prime affects nitritr readings.

Well, i don't use prime as it is. There pops up debate every so often on here about whether it even detoxifies ammonia for awhile like it claims. I don't use it so therefore i am neutral on it all.
