so bought a nitrate test kit to see how long i can go between water changes in my 75 with the 10" red devil. and my nitrates are at 0?

any thoughts? last water change was on 4-11 and i did about 30%. i use prime, does that have affect? i know it does with the ammonia reading.

Shake bottle number 2 like your life depended on it (upside down, tap bottom on counter, etc.) for 2-3 minutes. There are zinc particles that clump up when you don't use it for more than 7 days or so. You will see the actual clear particles as it comes out if you hold the bottle a certain way to the light.
