  1. Hi everyone! I have 2 questions on stuff I'm really confused about... 1. Do I kill off my cycle if I clean (rinse) my filter media in clean water that's been conditioned with Prime? I'm kind of freaked now because I just did that and my tank is not fully cycled yet... I also did a 100% w/c because of 1.0ppm nitrites so it may make things worse... My tank is not yet fully cycled but it has been producing nitrates for over a week and nitrites have been peaking (reached 5ppm overnight once!) for like 4-5 days. It is because of this I've been doing huge w/c, and in one of them took a look at the filter cartridge (Penguin 150) and was very alarmed by the amount of nasty stuff it had in there (it had never been cleaned, and it's been running for 6 weeks), so I decided to rinse it in clean water conditioned with Prime. Did I just set things back for me? 2. Can I leave my fish in the tank while adding back new water with a water changer if I add Prime? I've been doing water changes with a water changer, but I always remove my goldfish before I add back the new water. Guess I'm scared that even if I add enough Prime to treat the whole tank to what little water they have left in there, that the chlorine might still harm them. Does Prime work that fast that I can just add some to the remaining water and the new one will be fish safe immediately? Also I like the water to sit a little and have temperature match the previous temperature, just in case... I appreciate your help as always...
