    I believe Prime claimes to promote slime coat as well. I know stresscoat does not detox ammonia, but I don't know if that matters or not...To be honest, I also don't like the sort of monopoly seachem is running with that conditioner...but I am just one of those anti-mainstream types.

    Prime detoxifies ammonia. StressCoat does not. Some people say Stresscoat is good for finrot (Salt is bad news). My stock has never had that, but I have a small bottle anyway. I'[m leery of anything that says it promotes slimecoat. I have Prime in a 100mL (3.4oz) bottle which I decant into an empty test kit bottle so I can easily dose 2 drops/gal.

    So what is your opinion on Prime vs. Stresscoat+? Do you think it really makes a difference to the health of the fish? I just switched my betta over to stresscoat and I really don't know how I feel....I just switched because the bottle and dosage is more realistic for a 2.5g tank. The smallest bottle of prime would last me longer than the life of the fish, possibly double that, and I don't prefer that...

    Sorry I can't see your basic Betta care video. I have a 45 kps dialup. I'm sure you did a great job.

    Hallyx you understand what Jaysee is on about. That's the internet for you. Believe with caution. Or, as we used to say, "Know your dealer."

    That has been annoying me more and more lately....especially when extremely inexperienced people spout off info so matter-of-factually, like they have experienced whatever they were talking about for years. I don't want to be mean because I have done this myself, but it just annoys me now...What happens in theory and in practice are two different things....
