Seachem Prime is a concentrated conditioner designed to remove harmful chemicals such as chlorine and chloramine from freshwater and saltwater aquariums. The pet safe formula detoxifies ammonia, nitrites and nitrates as well as provides essential ions and contributes to the production of a natural slime coat. Prime is the perfect addition to any tank during cycling as it effectively alleviates ammonia and nitrite toxicity as the formula contains a binder which renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them permanently. Perfect for new tanks and whenever you are adding or replacing water. Prime will not over activate skimmers.
Directions For Use:
Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 200 L (50 US gallons) of new aquarium water. For smaller volumes, it is important to remember that each cap thread is approximately 1 mL. The solution can be added to the aquarium directly, but it is significantly better if added to the new water first. If you are adding the solution directly to the aquarium, base the dose level on the aquarium volume. A sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose can be used safely without harming aquatic pets. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency situation, up to 5 times normal dose may be used.
