Prime® is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and saltwater. Prime® removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies ammonia. Prime® converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank's biofilter. Prime® may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia / nitrite toxicity. Prime® detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. Det vil også detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Prime® is non-acidic and will not affect pH. Prime® will not overactivate skimmers. Gebruik bij opstarten en bij het toevoegen of vervangen van water.
Prime® also contains a binder that produces ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic. Det er meget vigtigt at forstå hvordan disse to funktioner fungerer sammen. All dechlorinators operate through a chemical process known as reduction. In this process, toxic dissolved chlorine gas (Cl2) is converted into non-toxic chloride ions (C1-). The reduction process also breaks the bonds between chlorine and nitrogen atoms in the chloramine molecule (NH2 Cl), freeing the chlorine atoms and replacing them with hydrogen (H) to create ammonia (NH3).
Typically, dechlorinators stop there, leaving an aquarium full of toxic ammonia! Seachem takes the necessary next step by including an ammonia binder to detoxify the ammonia produced in the reduction process.
Be very careful when purchasing water conditioners. If your municipality includes chloramines in the water supplies, a standard sodium thiosulfate dechlorinator is not enough. Prime® promotes the natural production and restoration of the slime coat rather than relying on artificial or non-native slime compounds. A further bonus for the reef hobbyist-Prime® will not overactivate protein skimmers.
Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 200 L (50 US gallons) of new water. For smaller volumes, please note each cap thread is approximately 1 mL. May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. Sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is> 30 ° C (86 ° F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
