Prime™ is a complete conditioner for both marine and freshwater use that removes chlorine, chloramine, and detoxifies ammonia and nitrite. It also provides essential ions and stimulates natural slime coat. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Prime™ also enhances nitrate removal. It should be the first choice conditioner when setting up a new tank, adding, or changing water. No other product is required to make water safe, even in high chloramine situations. Unlike competing products, Prime™ does not cause a pH drop or over-activate skimmers. A 100 mL bottle treats over 1,000 gallons, much more than competing products. Marine and freshwater.
WOW! I've been keeping fish for along time, 22yrs. Until about 4yrs ago, I always let my water setup at room temperature overnight in 5gln buckets to change the water. Needless to say it took awhile and my fish always looked "freaked" for a day or 2. With this stuff, I just pour it in based on there recommendations and add my water from the tap at aquarium set temperature and everyone is happy! Highly recommended as I use it both for my community tank and for my Africans.
I happened to see the ad on prime at mops and deceided to give it a try after doing some research. A capful of this stuff treats 50 gallons of water!!! trust me it works! After a water change, my fish seem to be swimming around without breathing heavy or trying to skim the top of the tank trying to get air.It has a funky garlic smell, I thought it was a bad batch but found out to be normal. When added to the tank, the smell is non existant. My water changes are quite large. About 50% once a week with no problems with the water chemistry at all!! Try it!! You won't be sorry. Amazing stuff and I hope they never remove this product from their inventory!!!
Looking at the competition, then at Prime is no contest...
Compare the amount of water treated per ounce, the ability to do EVERYTHING when it comes to water changes, new fish acclimation via slime coats and basically making your aquarium a better environment for fish in general...
There are some things you can skimp on and not worry about, your water quality is NOT one of them...
This water conditioner is by far the best I've used. After using various other products i decided to give prime a go and wont go back... ever! This stuff really works. Great value as you use so little of it too.

"Best out there"
I have been using Prime for years with no issues and decided to try Tropical Science Complete Care"Huge Mistake" because I got it for a good deal and it sounded good until it killed 32 juv Tang cichlids.Lesson learned, Research The Company before using it for Your Pets.
I've been using stress coat as a water conditioner for the past 5 years and i though why not see if prime lives up to its name. I TELL YOU WHAT!!! ill never use stress coat again, i never have problems with ammonia anymore since my tap is SATURATED with ammonia. This stuff WORKS. Ill never be with out my PRIME!!!

I've used this in all my aquariums for the last 10 years, for all my fresh and marine aquariums. I wouldn't recommend anything else.
This Product goes beyond all others on the market. You cant beat the price per gallons treated. Now add in that it detoxifies nitrite and nitrate and removes ammonia and you have the perfect water conditioner.
This stuff definately works and it doesn't take much. However, my 90 gallon tank is in my enclosed office, and it makes the air smell like garlic. I run 2 XP3's and 1 AC110 and two of the filters have charcoal, but the water still has a garlic smell.
A fellow fishkeeper recommended Prime to me about a year ago, and I'm glad I switched to Prime. As well as removing chlormines in the water, it also detoxifies harmful ammonia. I capful treats 50g of water, so it's very potent.
