I'm at .10 ppm and it says 1 capful removes .6 mg per liter how much should I add. Not sure about conversion. The tank is 25 gal, with 50< lb live rock and no sand

Prime is fine to overdose up-to 4 times the recommend amount, won't hurt corals or fish, it will prolong your cycle, that's why I didn't mention it

Safely you can ad 10-12.5ml. It work for 24-36hrs, I would go with the bio spira, in the end you'll have a ton of BB instead of prob half that amount by taking ammonia out.

The ammonia has dropped off to .05 and my nitrates are coming up from 10 to 30 so that means the BB are doing there jobs? There are little tube worms on the new rocks that are starting to come out. The red coral still looks bad but the orange one is looking better. I'm still getting the bio spira today, I think. I live way out in the sticks so trips to town are far and few between. I think I got 5 or 6 different species of macro algae, it's a shame a large portion of the plants died off on the way here. Thanks Grizz, Mr_X, and Dalmatia I was in a bind.
