Ok, thanks. How soon do you think I should get it? I have TopFin ammonia remover so can I wait a few days for prime or is it best to get it as soon as possible?

You can get Prime whenever it is most convenient for you. If you do get it soon though, you don't have to use both water conditioner and the ammonia remover.

I heard that amino chips or something can take ammonia out of water. Some people said that they prepared the water early and ran a filter with the chips in it for a day to remove ammonia from tap water. Is this something I should try to help things long term?

Oh yes! I forgot about ammo chips, also known as zeolite. You use these instead of activated carbon. What kind of filter do you have? Some filters you may have to get a filter bag and fill it with zeolite and use that instead of the regular filter cartridge. Other filters, you just take out the carbon and put a pre-prepared zeolite cartridge in.

I have an aqua clear 30 for my tank. It has activated carbon in its own packet that you have to add. I removed the carbon packet during the treatment so it won't affect the meds. Would ammo chips take out the meds like carbon does? If they don't, should I get those for my tanks to help with the ammonia? They wouldn't prevent a cycle, would they?

Aquaclear makes special ammonia inserts for their filters. Petsmart or Petco should have them. I don't *think* they take out meds because of they're not designed to adsorb like that but I'm not 100% sure.

Ok I'm going to petsmart so I will get some of those along with the prime. I took some pics of my betta with fin rot. He's been in the triple sulfa for 24 hours. How does he look? How severe would you say his fin rot is?
