Water Conditioners

Hey everyone, so im looking into possibly changing my water conditioner and i thought that i would get an idea of what everyone else uses!

i am also looking to find a place that sells it in bulk because i am sure that is much better than going and getting 250ml at a time at the store.

i started a poll on which one you use and if you want to comment below on why you choose that particular one that would be great!

I use Prime, one bottle lasts forever. It's a great product and cost effective, in my opinion.

Prime. A buddy and I just split a big bottle from Big Als:

Seachem Prime 2 Liter : Water Conditioners - $45

They also sell a 4 liter bottle for $75. Will literally last you forever.

I'm currently using Stress Coat but I am switching to Prime once my Stress coat bottle is done in about 2 weeks.

I've changed to prime recently after reading loads on here. A bit more expensive but a tiny amount needed so well worth the investment IMO

I use a solution made from sodium thiosulfate crystals. A pound of that stuff is only a few bucks and it treats tens of thousands of gallons easily, it's by far the cheapest method of dechlorination. It doesn't do anything to neutralize heavy metals, but heavy metals aren't an issue here (if they were i'd be more concerned about the people-use of the tap rather than the fish, lol).

I also keep a small bottle of prime handy to use in shipping bags or in the event that a tank goes into a minicycle.

Another cheaper alternative to Prime is Safe, it's a dry, more concentrated version of Prime.

Seachem. Safe

I bought one gallon of stress coat. It's good and does its job well. It will last me another year. I'll get prime for my next gallon. They're all the same to me.
