As of last test on Sunday everything was the same, Monday I went to the LFS and they gave me a filter that was in use for a month in their system, going to test it tomorrow and see if it is making any difference.
My fish all seem really active and happy, so hopefully that is a good sign, will post the results of my water test.

Hav you changed your filter media since tank started? I can't explain this but I changed my first hob at 1 month and ammo went to 0 within 2 days. 3 weeks later I changed my second hob and nitrites went to 0 within 2 days. Could be coincidence but who knows. You would think changing filter media would remove a bunch of bb but all I know is what happened

I added the new (old used) filter from the LFS I got but that's about it.

Be patient most of all. The first tank I cycled fish in took 4-5 weeks to show ammo. Then saw no nitrites till around week 7, by the end of the 8th week the nitrites were gone and had 40 ppm of nitrates.
It gets frustrating just keep up with water changes use your Prime and keep on plugging at it.
It sounds like you are doing everything right altho I dont understand the really heavy dose of Prime. My water is also treated with chloromine and I only use the recommended dose of 1ml pr 10 gal. Have never had any problems.
