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.
Primes the best value for money. A little goes along way
Great product but delivery was too slow , i had to buy the products again from another retailer
Sorry that you feel this way. We have reviewed your order, it was sent on the next working day after you ordered and was in transit for 5 working days. Considering that there is up to 14 working day delays going into your region currently, that delivery time is pretty good. We also made sure everybody was aware of the freight delays on our website before your purchase.
Absolutely awesome thanks Cam & co.
Better than adding four squirts of this and a few drops of that. This product takes over purchasing a heap of different products for protecting your water and your fish. It's a must.
