Re: [APD] Amquel Plus

Doesn't Seachem Prime claim to do something similar? Does Prime prevent
plants from uptaking nitrates? And how much nitrite will it actually deal

Prime detoxifies nitrites and nitrates when used as directed for that application. It will not prevent uptake of nitrate by the plants. We recommend a 5 times dose (over the standard Prime dose) to deal with nitrate levels in the 10-20 mg/L range but if one had 50 or 100 or more nitrate there isn't any reason one could not use more to get the same effect. We just don't address levels that high on the container since at over 100 mg/L or so it really makes more sense to do a water change as there is obviously something very wrong going on with the bacterial cycle at that point.
