Do you recommend a certain tap water conditioner?

Well the Top Fin water condition I bought when I first got my betta is running low so I figured I might as well ask on here for brands that are known good ones before I go out and buy some more. I've heard Prime mentioned several times, is this a good brand to go with, or is there one you'd recommend over it? Thank you!

Bang for the buck go Prime. Most posters here use Prime. Concentrated, 2 drops per gallon will last you a good long time.

Yes, a lot of people here use Prime... I'm going to try it myself once my run out. I've been using NovAqua and AmQuelwith great results.
Whichever you decide, be sure you get it BEFORE you run out and introduce the new one gradually by mixing the old with the new in increments until all you're using it's the new.

I just switched to Prime, and I LOVE not needing to count out 30 drops for my 3 gallon tank. Only 6 drops! Some people say it smells bad, but not to me. I don't smell it at all.

I just started using prime earlier today, and it does smell real bad...but only if you sniff the container. (which probably wasn't a good idea anyways)

Once it was in the water though, I couldn't smell it.

ah, however, I was used to using stress-coat before. Stress coat smells a little bit like aloe. I like the Prime so far though. I like even more that it will last longer.
