It has to be something so at this stage I feel it would be wrong to make any assumption. At the beginning I would not have expected there to be a problem with that combination and there may well not be but all things have to be considered in view of what has happened.

What next?

I really doubt that this is going to work from this position and I think it would be a waste of time just waiting any longer.
If it were me I would make a 100% water change without using prime. Then add a single dose of biomature and test the water for ammonia and see if that one dose is converted to nitrite and then nitrate without adding a second dose.
