I use Prime to remove chlorine and chloramines, run a HOB filter on a 35 gallon trash can with a heater for 24 hours, once the tank is filled up (usually 40-50%) I then add my Thrive.

Some folks add the Prime then use the water immediately. I just choose to wait 24 hours.

Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

Macro only on WC day.
Prime can bind with some metals making then unavailable to plants.

Sunday is water change day only for me, no dosing of any ferts. Treat water with prime as the bucket fills at the sink with water temp matched by digital thermometer.

My tank journal.
