Very funny ;-)
No, actually I was more concerned with Prime removing the Seachem iron,
zinc, copper... that I painstakingly add to my tank every week.
Every once in awhile the Office of Tbey comes out with a recommendation
to avoid a water conditioner that binds heavy metals because it will
interfere with the fertilizers added to the tank. I'm trying to
determine if this is true or not--or at least if it applies to Prime. I
guess I can assume from your reply that you don't feel this is an issue,
but a little clarification would be helpful. I guess it would help me to
understand what "detoxify any heavy metals" means and how it does or
does not affect the heavy metals in your fertilizers.
Thanks so much,
