There's been some discussion on if Seachem Prime or Seachem Purigen (at least once it's been bleached) harms ANaerobic bacteria. We know these don't hurt aerobic bacteria.
This all stems originally from this Pondguru video: Why Your Filter is TOO SMALL and NOT CYCLED
But if Prime really doesn't detoxify ammonia, and if Prime is really just a regular dechlorinator as shown in Reddit threads like this
or Reef2Reef threads like this
, then how could Prime harm anaerobic bacteria?
After scouring the internet, all I can find is people referencing the Pondguru video.
But has anyone done their own testing before & after using Prime or using Purigen?
Does Prime or Purigen hurt anaerobic bacteria?
