Prime contains no amine so its safe.

Also some amine based products can render Purigen non-regenerable

Good point! I think I suggested only using Prime, but I should probably add that comment to the article. I think they updated their FAQ because I don't remember reading that one.

My tanks: 120 Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber, 60 Reef Pond w/floating Algae Scrubber, 40 Breeder Reef w/L2 UAS Tester Algae Scrubber
I maintain: 144 SW Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber | 200 SW Reef w/L4 Algae Scrubber
Special knowledge: Algae Scrubbers, Acrylic Fabrication
