Seachem Prime

Bit of a newbie question here. Does using Prime during W/C's and top ups have the potential to remove wanted nitrates/bottom them out?

Normally I try to add it to the water in a bucket and let it sit b4 adding to tank, but the last couple times I added it straight to the tank whilst adding water through a hose off the tap.

in short yes it can.

Either way is good but if you add to the tank the dose should be for the tank volume.
It is more economical to dose the buckets. 1ML per 40Lt (10.57Gal)

People have reported doing it both ways with no problems so I wouldn't worry.
I myself dose the buckets while I fill them and then they go straight to the tank.
