They did also say that the heavy metal detoxifying of Prime is geared to trace amounts, such as would normally be encountered in tap water, and not significant levels of any metal which Prime is not able to deal with.
I dose Flurish the day folllowing the water change (I don't use Prime, but my conditioner does detoxify heavy metals). May be over cautious, but I assume Seachem know their products.
Well okay then, Thanks Byron! I generally never dose the fertilizers the same day as the water change anyways. I did a water change yesterday and a much needed trimming. So I will dose the fertilizer tomorrow. I am also planning on getting a different water conditioner this weekend as I don't like waiting 48 hrs later to dose fertilizers. Too likely to forget durning that period of time. LoL
