Quick question: now that I'm using well water is using Prime still necessary?

I wouldn't think so since its coming straight from the well to my house, but on the other hand I still have no problems using it as just a precaution.

You shouldn't have to worry about chlorine or chloramines in well water but you can test it for ammonia just in case. Even if there's a small amount, the bacteria should be able to take care of it assuming you have a fully cycled tank.

Awesome, thank you. Pretty sure I didn't lose the cycle during the move, I kept the media wet.
