API water conditioner

Any one use this? I only have 1/4 of my prime bottle left...and I love the stuff...But..I was just browsing the petco website and seen the API dose is only 1 drop per gallon..That seems pretty cool!

I wasted so much money on water conditioners before I discovered Prime.

But that stuff seems legit, API is a good brand. I've never used it though. It doesn't say anything about it promoting a slime coat..

No you have to get API Stress Coat. Its also a water conditioner. I use it for the stress coat part and it seems to be good.

I use the API Stress Coat have had no problems with it. I've only been using it a couple weeks though so I'm not sure what I'm suppose to be noticing. :P

That particular API product...One drop for chlorine per gallon...Three drops for chloramine per gallon...Dosage is: three drops per gallon if you have both issues in your water. Still not using much out of that size of bottle.

I have used that water conditioner a long time ago. I can't remember what it smells like compared to Prime. I know that it is just a water conditioner and does not add anything else to the tank like slime coat healing properties, herbal remedies, PH stabilizers, etc. Yes, a person really needs to read the water conditioner dosage instructions: The fish you save might be your own.

I have extra sensitivities to smell, the stress coat doesn't seem to have a smell (at least not that I could detect). I normally use it only after he's chewed up his fins.
