Switching water conditioner

Hi all, I was just wondering if switching water conditioners would hurt/affect my betta in anyway. Right now I'm using TopFin Betta Water Conditioner but I would like to switch to Seachem Prime. If it is OK to switch, how should I do it? 100% water change then with the new water use Prime? Or do 10% everyday like normal and use Prime and kinda mix the water conditioners? Sorry if this is confusing.... And if your wondering I have a 2.5 gallon tank.

As far as I understand, you don't need to acclimate your fish to a new conditioner or anything....you just start using it. A change in conditioner shouldn't effect the general quality/chemistry of the water to the point where it might effect the fish I'd think.

Just keep up with your regular maintenance, and next time you add any new water into the tank just use the Prime. ;)

Thanks! That really helps me :) I see most people on here use Prime, so that is why I decided to switch.

Sure thing! :)
Oh yes, Prime is definitely the best stuff out there, and very economical since its so concentrated. I made he switch a couple of years ago and never looked back. ;)
