I have Prime but rarely use it. I hear that some time next year the city water supply will add chloramines. I'll have to use my Prime then.

Prime gets my vote. I buy the 2L bottles for 30 bucks! I know that's cheap......it's hook up price.

The 2L lasts me almost a year cause I do about 50% every 5-7 days.

Fishes love clean water..... :wink:

I use PRIME with every water change.

I used Stress Coat for some time & when our municipality announced that chloramines would be added to our water, I switched over to PRIME & have been using it ever since.

I had an occassion where I couldn't get PRIME as fast as I wanted to & I used AMQuel Plus for a few times & b/c of the reaction that I got from my fish, I stopped using it & only use PRIME again.

Works for me.

It realy works for me.
Frontosa have great colors and torn fins heal realy fast.

I believe it is also avaliable in the usa.

Is there somebody out there who is also using it????

I don't use anything. I'm on well water... tanks run a ph of about 8.8 very high GH and KH with nothing. Used to be 9.18 using a borrwed ph meter but I recently got a ph meter and know what it really true now on a calibrated ph meter.

In the past I used Prime and Hagen Aqua Plus

:shock: :mrgreen: OK let me add this up & see what I get Bit!

You are on well water & don't have to use conditioners. CHECKYour well water pH is high. CHECK
:roll:

Hmmm, let's see, I'd say that the above factors out to be ONE LUCKY Hobbyist!!

I know I am very fortunate. This was not by accident. When I was moving from an apartment to a house I checked the water supply before purchasing the house :)

For those using water conditioners be aware of what your local water treatment plant uses chloramine or chlorine. It makes a difference. As an alternative to water conditioners you could treat the water like you do with the pre-filters in a RODI unit, This can virtually eliminate the use of water conditioners. Chlorine will destroy the membrane on a RODI unit so they have filters you use to remover it prior to the RO stage.

It might be an old post, but I need to share my experience, as well. I'm using Tetra Aquasafe for 6 months, and as one of members told, it looks like OK. I bought 17.6 Oz for $15. It treats up to 1000 L water. Also, it contains vitamin B. The other product I have used is Microbe-Lift XTreme. I bought 4 Oz bottle for $9. It treats up to 240 gal. To compare with Aquasafe, it detoxifies nitrite, and removes ammonia. I was wondering about some comments about good water quality around. I think water conditioners are mainly used for removing chlorine, chloramine, which are used for water sterilizing.
