So apparently I have ammonia - didn’t a couple days ago!  

0.5 ammonia

trace nitrite, just slightly off blue 

5ppm nitrate

7.6 pH

74 F (no heater, this is room temp)


What I would do is test daily for ammonia and nitrite and do a water change if your test shows any and add a double dose of prime to help detoxify any ammonia or nitrite till it constantly stays at zero I would recommend treating with aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 5 gallons at that level it shouldn't harm your plants for 1 week give an update after a week if your seeing no improvement or the spots get worse
