Does anybody or is it recommended to use prime in salt water tanks to condition RO/di water? I use it in my freshwater tanks just curious if I should be using it in my new salty

I never have used it. Ro/di water does not need it IMO.

Yeah I agree RO/DI should have literally no trace elements so there's no need for conditioners.

what about as a stress/slime coat additive does it have any benefit from that aspect. Maybe not from the detoxifying but doesn't it have other benefits

If you were to test TDS in water before and after using the conditioning products
It will raise the TDS count higher .
I read a few things that I am confused about .
1) RO/DI water is ok to store but if you store it mixed with salt it goes bad ?
2) prime is ok for salt water / reefs ? But stress coat isn't
