To maintain an ornamental aquarium at home, you need to purchase numerous products that are necessary for caring for your fish. One of the most important tools is a water conditioner. Its purpose is to remove harmful substances and toxins from water that are initially contained in it. We usually use tap water to fill our aquariums.
Think about what your fish needs to breathe and live in. Chlorine compounds, which are used for disinfection in water treatment plants, damage your pets’ sensitive gills. This can lead to asphyxiation and then death. Use water conditioners to keep your water safe.
If you are looking for a water conditioner to treat new water before it enters the tank, you have most likely already met Sichem Prime in your research. You can check out our review below.
Seachem has been in business over 40 years and is now sold in over 60 countries worldwide. Their experience in the hobby and an educated staff of chemists and biologists are part of the package when you purchase Seachem products. Seachem remains as one of the few surviving independent and privately owned pet care companies. Seachem is owned and operated by hobbyists. All of our employees are hobbyists who maintain aquariums at home and at the office. Seachem itself was started because one such passionate hobbyist – Dr. Leo G. Morin (Founder) – recognized that the available solutions to aquarists’ problems were wanting. This resulted in Seachem’s very first product: Cupraplex™ (today known as Cupramine™). Over thirty years later, Seachem is still approaching old problems in a new way.
A few words about their first product – Cupramine™
That is a copper treatment for external parasites. Bound on amine so it is not as toxic to fish. Cupramine™ effectively eradicates Oodinium, Cryptocaryon, Amyloodinium, Ichthyophthirius, and other ectoparasites of both freshwater and marine fish. It is superior to copper sulfate, chloride & citrate: it is non-acidic, less toxic to fish, remains in solution, and does not contaminate the filter bed. It is superior to chelates: it is fully charged (ionic), active at low concentrations, and is removable with carbon or Cuprisorb.
Seachem Prime – A safe and effective solution
Nearly all pet aquatics companies manufacture a product that removes chlorine. None of those, however, can compare in quality, concentration, or effectiveness to Seachem’s flagship product: Prime®. Prime® is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and saltwater. Prime® removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. It is non-acidic and will not impact pH. A further bonus for the reef hobbyist—Prime® will not over-activate skimmers.
