I'd say Prime.

It may seem a little pricey at first, but it is super-concentrated, so you only use very small amounts each water change.

I used to use AmQuel+ but switched to Prime. One capful of Prime is good for 50 gallons. That little bottle lasts a long, long time.

I also use Prime. It is cheaper in the long run and does not cause cycling issues like Amquel Plus does.

Prime. Wont use anything else now. Oh, and that little add they put on the bottle about how it also detoxifies ammonia, nitrite or nitrate so that your bio filter can process it better is true. Helped clear some issues I had with water parameters quite nicely.

Prime. Cheaper because it is more concentrated and never had any problems with it.
