It's a water conditioner to make tap water safe. I used it at initial setup and every time I do a water change. Any water going into my tank is treated with this product. Make sense??

I use Prime now and am going to stick with it. I used API stress coat and Tetre Aqua Safe, only to see my fish do a lot of flashing right after a water change and I was very careful about not overdosing. My fish stopped doing this after I switched to Prime.

There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore....
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past.
There is a reason they didn't make it to your future.

Prime gets my vote.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Prime here. It not only neutralizes chlorine, chloramine, and heavy metals, it will also detoxify ammonia and nitrites to a degree. It's a great all around product.
