Water Conditioner

I've been fishkeeping for quite sometime, just have community tanks. I've been hearing really good things about Prime (Seachems) water conditioner. I currently use Tetra Aqua Safe Plus. Any comments?

Prime is very economical and works great. Usually cheaper online. It detoxifies ammonia, nitrite and nitrate as well as dechlorinates. Good stuff. Everything I've used from Seachem is good stuff.

Personally speaking, in regards to Prime, don't even bother ...........

............with anything else. Prime's as good as it gets. I consider it the best
conditioner / dechlorinator. There are others that are fine ... but I find prime to be the most economical and best option as mentioned.

Prime is by far the best bang for your buck. It's treats a lot more water compared to others at the same price. I wouldn't use anything else.

I agree with everyone else. I recently switched to Prime from Api stress coat. Super product. Is very expensive for me(have to import from the US), but i think it's worth it. I found the stress coat left slime on my decor and equipment. Has gone since switching to Prime.....

Prime also comes in a powdered form called SAFE from Seachem. It used to be hard to find but I see more places online carrying it these days. It is actually much more economical than the liquid Prime version. It only takes a very minute amount of powder even for a large tank. If you use a lot of Prime or cost is an issue then look into SAFE.

You can get ANYTHING shipped if you go about it the right way

I get 1 kg bags of hikari massivore shipped to the UK from the US with no problem

You just need to ask sellers on US eBay via message if you don't ask you don't get its as simple as that
