prime water conditioner & water testing

If I am using prime water conditioner, is that going to have an effect on testing for ammonia etc. with the API test kits?

Oh gosh, I hope that Prime is the only factor messing with my API ammonia test. I'm having issues with this myself.

I've never had issues with Prime and my test results. If anything Prime helps lower the amounts of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate in your tank which is a good thing. The only thing I can think of as a draw back would be if your cycling, but I've cycled 6 tanks while using Prime and have not had any problems.
