use Safe is more economical. 1/4 tsp enough for big tanks. one small bottle i use many years lol

I am using the 2L version of what 4pxCSO is using.Thinking of jumping to another brand.

Prime or Safe is for anti-chlorine/chloromine and eliminates nitrate/nitrite and ammonia?

Which is the better one?

I have a bottle of powdered Seachem neutral regulator at home.Will that do the trick?

not sure but as long they can out breed than they die, I don't really care.
but 1 thing for sure, our hot weather will shorten their lifespan.

Oh ok, anyone knows if C328 selling? and roughly how much is the small bottle?

the LFS around bishan / amk i dun see it
Anything you buy in C328 florist is cheapest in the whole nation.

I've already done the comparison before.

And no need insist on seachem brand, other brands like API works equally good.

The platies are in a 90 x 45 x 50 tank in my study with 120 embers and 10 corys.

I always maintain their water temperature at below 26 degrees.

Each time after weekly water change,I run the AC in my study for an hour per week.Will that help them?

https://www.seachem.com/safe.php

Safe™ is the complete and concentrated dry conditioner for both fresh and salt water. Safe™ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. Safe™ converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank’s biofilter. Safe™ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. Safe™ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. Safe™ is non-acidic and will not impact pH. Safe™ will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
