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.

I use the API stress coat and stress zyme during my water changes. I've heard alot of good things about prime. You guys think it's something I should look into? I'm going to the LFS this weekend to see if they got any cory catfish in

Let me know what you think

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.
