    Hey guys. On Saturday I set up my 5 gal betta tank. The next day I added a whole bottle of TSS. The water level was low throughout the week so I decided to top it off on Thursday. I used Prime as my conditioner. Oops!

    Will the Prime effect the TSS on the 6th day of TSS cycling? I accidentaly put Prime in on Thursday.

    Most likely the addition of Prime affected TSS. Keep a very close eye on your fish for any changes in behavior or signs of stress.

    6 days is too soon to be testing, but on day 10, I would test. If the parameters are off, I would begin daily water changes. Odds are TSS will have accelerated your cycle, but the use of Prime probably would cause it to not be able to complete.

    Good luck!
