Ok my tank has been set up for three weeks. 55 gal 2 cons. Nitrites read 0 nitrates read less than 5. But have a small amount of ammonia. But I think its a false positive. Using prime with ap. Now I heard fish wont spawn in water that has any trace of ammonia in it. So can I assume my tank is cycled since the convicts laid eggs? And that I am getting a false positive with the prime?

I'm sure its not the kit. I was reading that prime will give false positive with the AP master kit. Anyone heard this? I've used this kit for years. But Im new to prime. Maybe I will buy a different remover instead of buying another 40 dollar kit.

Any wc lately? Maybe you have ammonia out the tap.

Ya water changes every day. About 15-20 gallons. I checked the tap no ammonia. And I decided to keep the cons as final stock. But yes they were in just for the cycle at first. I think I will see what happens over the next few days. I mean they seem very happy. Thanks for the replies.
