Prime is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and saltwater. Prime removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies 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. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Prime is non-acidic and will not impact pH.
Nearly all companies manufacture a product that removes chlorine. None of those, however, can compare in quality, concentration, or effectiveness to Seachem’s flagship product: Prime
Prime also contains a binder which renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic. It is very important to understand how those two functions work together. All dechlorinators operate through a chemical process known as reduction. In this process, toxic dissolved chlorine gas (Cl2) is converted into non-toxic chloride ions (Cl-). The reduction process also breaks the bonds between chlorine and nitrogen atoms in the chloramine molecule (NH2Cl), freeing the chlorine atoms and replacing them with hydrogen (H) to create ammonia (NH3).
Typically, dechlorinators stop there, leaving an aquarium full of toxic ammonia! Seachem takes the necessary next step by including an ammonia binder to detoxify the ammonia produced in the reduction process.
A must have when town supply bad particularly with all the chemical additives etc. Fish wouldn't survive without it and its metal binding abilities. We have Aluminium additive which is lethal to fish. If not used my fish die, highly recommended.
Always a hassle free experience buying from The Fish Room.
I use this product every time I do a water change. It's a great product.
Dosing for our 10 litre is actually pretty easy, a pin prick in the top of the foil top and 1x drop per 2 litres is all it takes to safeguard our tank against our chlorinated Nelson water! Definitely a worthwhile investment and will last a lifetime at 3 drops per water change!
Fast no hassle , would highly recommend to shop from , Thankyou
