    Default Best dechlorinator?


    0 Not allowed!
    Since I got my 10 gallon I have just been using the supplies that I got with the tank from the previous owner. Among the bottles of stuff was a TopFin brand dechlorinator. Today I used the last of it while I was doing my water change so I'll be going to the store tomorrow to get some new.

    I have realized that most TopFin products are crap so I would like to get something different. What is everyone's favorite?

    I think the answer you will get a lot of is Seachem Prime. Its extremely concentrated and allows you to use less over time. It also includes stresscoat! However, whatever you get comfortable with and that works for you is often times a better answer! Best of luck!

    I recently changed over to Prime and haven't had any problems with it. I use a lot less and it does the job.

    I'm in love with Safe by seachem. It's the powdered, even more concentrated version of Prime. 1/8th teaspoon will treat 25 gallons. I've had my bottle of Safe for about 8 months, with weekly water changes in 7 tanks I've used a little over half of it. Best $8 ever!

    I think Prime is easily the most popular. it's been proven to be a reliable treatment from a good percentage of our members for years now.

    IMO definitely ditch the topfin once you use up the bottles.

    +1 for Prime...

    I also use Seachem's Safe (concentrated powdered version of Seachem's Prime). The 1kg container that I brought last year will treat ~200,000gal and even with all the tanks that I have, should last me a good decade or more.

    I just bought Prime myself and it calls for a cap full per 50 gallons.

    On a 10 Gallon tank a bottle of this must last a decade!

    I think we are all a bit biased on the Prime side, I use it too. I don't know if it's any better than the other products out there. I used to use a tetra product (can't remember the name), with the same success. Now that I am changing out around 125 gallons a week and finally have a Python water changer so I am using enough dechlorinator for 250 gallons a week Prime just makes good economic sense.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    On that size tank. Seachem Safe or Chloram-X will make more sense after you check them out. Safe is the dry form of Prime. Keep the appropriate size measuring spoon on the bottle and life gets even easier than it is using Prime.

    I sprinkle it into the outflow from a filter when doing changes on large tanks. You'll only regret the purchase the first time when you pay for a bottle that doesn't have water in it. ;-)
