Product Description

Prime is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and salt water. Prime removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. Prime converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank's biofilter. Prime may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. Prime detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. Prime also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat. Prime is non-acidic and will not impact pH. Prime will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.

Important Information

Directions
Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 200 L (50 gallons*) of new water. This removes approximately 1 mg/L ammonia, 4 mg/L chloramine, or 5 mg/L chlorine. For smaller doses, please note each cap thread is approx. 1 mL. May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. Sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.

I have been keeping fish for 30+ years.Just about every major manufacture and boutique specialty company has a water conditioning and treatment product. I can't say I've tried them all, but close too it. Some products have at the least, minimal effectiveness while others can be potentially dangerous.

An example would be Stress Coat which has binding sugar strands in the Aloe. This isn't a problem unless one of your fish has a small scratch or wound.The sugar feeds the bacteria which can lead to major infection and dire consequences.I've been using Amquel for years and it's a fine conditioner, excellent at removing chlorine, and Chloramines, but like all these products - they come with limitations.

With one exception and that's Prime by Seachem.

Prime doesn't just remove the chlorine and Chloramine it does much more:

* Detoxifies any and all heavy metals in your tap water

(you can call your water company directly for a list of them and PPM)

* Neutralizes Ammonia

* Neutralizes Nitrite

* Neutralizes high Nitrate to non toxic levels

* Removes toxic gases

* Will not foam or change PH

* Helps regenerate natural slime coat

I bleach a lot of coral and Prime is indespensible in removing every trace of ammonia and caustic bleach - it also cuts down the rinsing cycle by hours which saves a great deal of water while ensuring the safety of the fish. In addition to the outstanding, patented formula of Prime - it couldn't be more economical to use. This 2 L bottle will treat a whopping 20,000 gallons of water. A tiny bit goes a long, long way.

It should also be noted that in times of emergency the dose can be increased five times, Prime is harmless to fish.

Treats 20,000 gallons.

Really.

What more needs to be said?

Well, I guess I can say it works perfectly, and I've never had unhappy fish in any of my tanks when doing water changes.

I love Prime. It is the best water conditioner out there. You get so much more for your money, especially when you buy the large size. I have a 180 gallon tank, two 55s and a number of smaller tanks and have only had to buy this one 2L bottle once while doing weekly, 80%+ water changes. I detoxifies ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. Making it great for cycling and keeping your fish safe. It does get stinky though.

I honestly will only ever buy Prime as my water conditioner.

I have 245 gallon and a 180 gallon freshwater tanks with thriving fish such as discus and clown loaches that have been with me for quite a long time, thanks to using Seachem Prime.

I am a lazy fish keeper, but clean my tanks every two weeks and once a month clean out the canister filters due to high bio load. I worked a method of siphoning out ½ the old tank water, treating the tank with Prime 5x more than normal dose while adding slowly unfiltered tap water directly into the tank. The unfiltered water is approximately same temperature as existing fish tanks' water to prevent temperature shock for the tropical fish. I do not recommend this method of water changing to smaller tanks.

I am able to do this type of water change because the Prime water conditioner is really concentrated and able to quickly rid the chlorine/chloramines and the nasty ammonia and nitrates/nitrites.

I had used other brands that say are the equivalent to Prime, but they are NOT, and if you are using my method of water changing with the other brands, you may end up with DEAD fish.

My discus and clown loaches are happy swimmers, begging for food right after I am done cleaning their tanks. I know that Prime is doing its job, and I can rest and put my feet up and enjoy the clean fish tanks for another two weeks.

If you want to treat your water for chlorine, chloramine, nitrites, Prime is the best.

If you use API Ammonia test kit, you will get a false positive for ammonia!! Prime binds to ammonia and makes it non toxic so the bacteria in the tank can use it but it's harmless to the fish. API's test kit does not differentiate between bound ammonia and free ammonia and will give you a positive result which can cause issues.

Use Seachem's Multi-Test Ammonia to get a proper result for free and bound ammonia. There may be another test kit that will work - You can do a bit of research to find one.

I have spoken to professionals, breeders, and I'm a member of an aquatic club that has a few professionals and they all use Prime...

If it's good enough (and recommended) by the experts, it's good enough for me.

Lastly, Seachem products in general seem to be a higher grade than others. I use their Excel, Flourish, Matrix, and Purigen. My experience is that they go out of their way to provide the best product they can.

I think Prime is the best chlorinator out that and 2L will last me for ages. note: the picture shown is not the 2L bottle which is much larger.

It does what it's supposed to very well. It DOES stink though- whewww! But the smell will go away. I use it in conjunction with Purigen and Neutral Regulator- I highly recommend all three.
