I don't know about Prime except that on this website I read some threads where people said things like "I ONLY trust Seachem Prime" .. ha ha .. so I now use it, even though it smells like rotten cat pee :)

I had to google forever before I found dosages for small tanks though. A lot of products don't take into account betta tanks or nano tanks .. or anything under 20 gallons.

Yeah, I don't smell it. Well ... at least I haven't smelled it yet. I trekked 2 hours to and back from Walmart in a blizzard while I was sick (coughing up blood, not fun) JUST so I could get Prime and salt for my bettas to get better. If that's not devotion, then I don't know what is. People saying its "just a fish". Ugh! That was last a week ago (Monday), BTW. I'm still sick, but getting better. I got blisters all over my feet. lol but, anything for my bettas. :D

I use a medical syringe to dose prime... My mom is a nurse so she has easy access to them. It's like .1 ml per gallon.

Prime is good because it can neutralize ammonia for 24-48 hours. It's good for people with ammonia in their tap. Plus, its just a high quality conditioner. Even if it smells like sulfur..

I miss my Lithium. :(

Aw .. I will post a couple pics. I don't know why he got sick and it was really sad, my mom & I loved looking at him! But I have a thing where I don't like to look at photos of dead beloved pets, I always feel guilty & bummed. But it's kind of nice to see we all feel that way some times.

And then this is him more colored up the week that he died .. . he was lethargic and his gill was all messed up and he was breathing heavily. This is his hospital tank, I'll post his real tank too.

Well it's not just "just a fish" to all of us here on this website! :)

Right?! :)

Still, GORGEOUS betta and tank! I'm so sorry that he passed ... I'll try to find something of Lithium. The only thing is that he was sick at the time and it is all I can find ...
