Re: [Killietalk] Killietalk Digest, Vol 55, Water conditioners
My experiences have been similar to the post below.
Ordinarily the water quality is very good but it can become unpredictably bad for any number of causes. Repair work upstream in the supply lines is a reason why a transient spike can occur at any time as they add chlorine compounds as a precaution or maybe the dosage at the plant required an increase or is accidentally higher than usual.
Prime just seems to cover these variables better than the other products I have used. I breed wild and domestic Discus, Dwarf fancy plecos, Royal Whiptail Cats and Apistogramma sp. and have had sudden symptoms of distress or deaths immediately following water a large water change but this never has happened since only using Prime. This is no proof of it's superiority but just that the problems disappeared after making the switch from other products for me. It always hurts to loose a nice fish or whole tanks of them but when they cost $175 each like the Hypancistrus zebra pleco or two, one tends to use what works.
One gallon goes much further than most of the other products.

I like Novaqua.... but I like Prime better. Prime is a very potent product,
so you only have to use a few drops. It's more expennsive, but cheaper in
the long run since the bottle lasts so long. It also is available by the
Usually our tap water is good here (so good that it doesn't even kill
Daphnia).... but lately we've been having problems. After a large water
change certain fish will swim to the top and try to jump out!! This is
really bad with Aphy striatum (my last male went belly up for a few hours)
and even worse with Fp scheeli, who actually climb up and sit on top of
floating ketapang leaves...... odd, since these are 2 very common and "easy"
species. In any case, the Prime takes care of that problem 100%.
