What are them other products you listed for? Prime I heard of I was told not to use it in a planted tank it removes some of nutrients needed for plants?
You CAN use prime in a planted tank. It's probably the most used declor on AA and many members use it with planted tanks. It's a bit more expensive initially but long term, it works out cheaper. 1Litre of Prime treats 10,000 US gallons of water, that's 37,854ltrs!!!. Stress Coat can't be used when running Purigen. Purigen is great at removing/absorbing toxins in the water, it also polishes the water. Matrix is a bio-media, 1ltr of it has the same surface area of 250ltrs of bio-balls. De-nitrate removes Nitrates but can only be used in filters with a flow of less than 50gph. New Life Spectrum, great food for all types of fish. My fish go mad for it. If you google the above products, it will give you a more detailed explanation of their benefits....
