You dont want to add fish then have them die because of an ammonia spike. I would get an ammonia test kit and some Prime just in case. I think your fine but a backup plan is always a good thing. When things go south its never at a good time.

Prime doesn't hurt the live bacteria but I wouldn't bother with it. Test first, don't dump something in the tank unless you have a test that shows you need to.
