All you do is measure enough Prime for the volume of your tank, put it in before you add new water, add new water, and you are done.

Your filter may not be providing enough water agitation. What filter do you have?

Are you testing with strips or liquid test? Strips are not accurate.

Add an airstone with an air pump

How much prime did you add? This is a 20 gallon tank?

The filter you have is probably not producing enough water agitation of the surface. Lower the water level so that there is more splashing when the water leaves the Aquaclear 50. Or you can add an airstone with an airpump

Use only 1 capful of Prime for 50g to dose the whole tank volume.
