helped me to get the tank cycle routine down without harming the fish, had a few hiccups a few months in with a different product. This helps make ammonia less toxic (doesn't remove it completely) and lasts for around a day, so gives you time to do your water changes and get your feeding routine down pat. Always have a testing kit too. If it spikes, I use this, when adding water I use a tiny amount of this too.
I’m doing an in fish cycle in my new tank and unfortunately due to wrong advice from my local pet shop, I’ve put a few too many fish. I’ve ended battling against high nitrate levels and doing 50% water change every day to keep the water chemistry at acceptable levels. I’ve tried Fluval Biological enhancer which made no noticeable difference. I thought I give Prime a go after reading lots of rave reviews! I now understand why. 24hrs after applying a good dose of this, my nitrite levels have been near 0. Although Prime only combats Nitrite and Ammonia levels temporarily (I think 48hrs) it will certainly get me through until my cycle is complete and certainly will decrease my frequency of 50% water change! This stuff is highly concentrated!! 5ml per 200litres!! I have a aqua nano 55litre tank. A full tank dose is only around 1.4ml! Yes that’s right 1.4ml! To get around the problem of measuring such a small dose, I use a syringe, the ones you get with Capol. Works a treat and 500ml will last me a very long time! Certainly recommend this over everything else.
I don't usually review, but think I need to as I was dubious before buying. So to set the scene, I have pre-cured dry rock for 3 months - got a new tank and then done a very small cycle (due to cured rock). Everything going well fish were added. A few days later noticed the ammonia (NH3 only) went going up and up on my seneye. Not knowing why i obviously started to panic, got a bottle of Prime (to detoxify whilst battling the ammonia) and this Stability product which i added as described on the bottle.
Turns out my RO system was allowing out a large proportion of solids, chlorine and chloramine kill beneficial bacteria and this is what caused the die off. The Prime sorted that too but it was too late. Anyway...
Dosing with this my ammonia eventually stopped rising at 0.145 (on my seneye - so this is NH3 only, free ammonia). And then started creeping down. Within 6 days my ammonia has come down to 0.002 and no nitrites are registering either - basically fully cycled (again) in this time. I would REALLY recommend this for any startup, or emergency - hand in hand with Prime honestly, i dont think my fish would have survived this.
I have 7 BIG fish in a 1000l tank (marine) - not one casualty due to quick action with this!
An essential water treatment that binds ammonia for 48 hours making it harmless to your fish. It does not remove ammonia it just makes it harmless, I used in conjunction with Seachem Stability (good bacteria) when first setting up my tank. You can use up to 5 times the dose (I've not needed to do that) for ammonia spikes or you can use it to keep the ammonia at bay. It's highly concentrated and starts working immediately. I honestly do not know what I would've done without this amazing treatment. Totally recommend.
Found this to be the most economical water conditioner so far. As well as removing chlorine from the water it also has the ability to remove heavy metals. Comes in very handy during ammonia/nitrite spikes, with the ability to bind both ammonia and nitrites making them easier/safer for the filters to remove.
Fish seem much happier after switching to this water conditioner. Promotes slime coat on the fish. Only need to use 1/2 a capfull in my 120l tank, so provides a few years use. Definitely aids in keeping the water parameters correct.
Was recommended by a friend. Very impressed during my usage of Prime during the past few months. Would recommend for aquarium keepers, water parameters have never been so stable.
I have seen this conditioner as highly rated across various websites. The fact it binds the ammonia already in the tap water for a few days to give the bacteria times to process it is a great additional effect of the conditioner. Also useful if you have a sudden ammonia spike.
I was at first put of by the high price of the bottle (500ml) which I ordered in June 2017. However, as this is concentrated, I ordered the next bottle in February 2019.. and I am STILL now (April 2019) using the last of the first bottle. It lasts ages! My aquarium is 110L and I used the prime for every water change and the odd setting up and playing around with a smaller tank.. yet it still lasted me nearly 2 years!
