Help plz

The 0 nitrates are a bit concerning...

Try a retest and shake the crap out of the regent bottles AND the tube. That many Africans it has to be a faulty test

Edit: yes prime has a sulfer/rotten egg smell. If it's something different try cleaning under the top rim of the tank. Sometimes food can get stuck under there.

It's just the prime. It will go away.

Okay that looks better. Ammonia looks like 0.50 but it's probably just the lighting making it look darker.

Nitrates look around 20 which is good. It's best to aim for 20ppm and under.
