They put chloramine into the water to fight against infurosia(spelling?), and it won't dicipate over time like chlorine.

Its also a good idea to test your ammonia levels right after adding the Prime. Chloramines break down into ammonia and chlorine. It saves a lot of needless panic when you pop up with low levels if you know its just from your water change.

yea i have plans on getting a bigger tank and am trying to find one that is goingto work well for me and my lil guys, also i think i need to move the tank to a different area, my room is just too sunny, i dont have the tank in direct sun but it does get alot of sun and i have been told that is bad for water temp as well as for algae.
