Seachem – Prime
Seachem – Prime Nearly all pet aquatics companies manufacture a product that removes chlorine. None of those, however, can compare in quality, concentration, or effectiveness to Seachem’s flagship product: Seachem – Prime. Prime is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and saltwater. Prime® removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. Prime® promotes the natural production and restoration of the slime coat rather than relying on artificial or non-native slime compounds. It is non-acidic and will not impact pH. A further bonus for the reef hobbyist—Prime® will not over-activate skimmers.
Seachem – Prime is up to 5x more concentrated than competing products and is the second most concentrated dechlorinator on the market only after our own aquavitro® alpha™.
You can use Prime during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. It contains a binder that renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water. When transporting or quarantining fish, use Seachem StressGuard™. When adding new fish, use Stability. Both are ideal for use with Prime®.
Method of use:
Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 200 L (50 US gallons) of new water. For smaller volumes, please note each cap thread is approximately 1 mL. You can add it to the aquarium directly, but it is better if you add it to new water first. If you are adding it directly to your aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. Sulfur odour is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5 times the normal dose may be used. If the temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
