I've always been an API Stress Coat guy since I saw it being used when I bought fish. I hear a lot about Seachem Prime. What do others use? I'm not against sticking with Stress Coat, but wondering if there's something better. You know us fishkeepers....never satisfied, always tweaking!!

I used Stress Coat for a while. But it's really messy and since it's part medicine I felt iffy about it because I didn't want to drug my fish every water change. I now use Seachem Prime and I like it much better. You can use much less since it is very concentrated to.

Seachem Safe. I bought this many years ago. I bought 2.2LBS and have been using this every week in 4 tanks. I will probably have this for at least 20 more years. I use 1/4 tsp per 300 gallons

Jungle Start Rite...I've been using since I started last March. It's what the LFS recommended to me!

I use Imagitarium or Stress Coat, just depends which is on sale. No preference or differences I see I also use Prime with both

I'm almost out of the Aqueon it seems fine. I have a bottle of Prime for "flare ups....lol" But am switching to only Prime when the other is done.

PRIME, is there really any other choice?

Just kidding! But yeah prime was the first one I ever used and never looked back.

Prime here too! Goes a long way and is excellent for cycling tanks too. It not only dechlorinates but detoxifies ammonia and nitrite up to 1ppm for up to 48 hours. Winner in my books :)

What happens if you dose HikarI Ultimate, Kordon AmQuel, or any of the other 5 mL / 10 gal dechlorinators at 1 mL / 10 gal?
