i didnt understand the desc. is it for use when your tryin to establish a tank

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??

ok i understand now. Thanks

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. :-D

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 gets my vote.;-)

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.

i'm convinced! Thanks guys! I'll make the switch this weekend
