Usually, no. Conditioner is conditioner. If it removes chlorine at least and better yet heavy metals, its doing its job.
However, that goldfish stuff you seem to have found has some sort of ammonia neutralizer l=much like Prime does. Most products dont do that, so its nice.
If it removes the chlorine and heavy metals, its good. If it also removes ammonia, well then! Its even better.
Once you run out, Prime is a great option. You can use either conditioner just fine.

that amused me ;-;"
but yeah, I heard it's supposed to be good x3
on the other hand they say don't use it unless you HAVE to. and that large water changes every day are better.
but if it was SUPER bad it might be different.... MAYBE, I'm not sure ><
you might ask OFL, I have a feeling she'd say just water changes though... if he's healed up he should be alright.... lots of water changes, good feeding, if you do only use pellets maybe substitute some freeze-dried bloodworms for nutrients and whatnot... and keep the current way down for fragile fins, my little guy had a tear that was almost healed up and the water evaporated a little low and caused a strong current and it ripped back D: so watch that. but he should be better if he's on the mend :D watch closely ^-^
I had him on an aggressive salt regimen, but this rot was progressed through an injury to the point where it didnt cut it. Poor guy's fins were gnawed away.
Im nervous about this awful strain because of how aggressive it was, and want it to be DONE and not come back! D;
If I did* do it, Id wait a few days for him to just have clean water.
