No other aquarium water conditioning product is required to make tap water safe. Prime removes chlorine and chloramine (even in high chloramine levels)and detoxifies ammonia and nitrite. Provides essential ions and stimulates natural slime coat. Prime also detoxifies any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. When used during cycling, prime enhances nitrate removal and does not cause a ph drop or over activate protein skimmers. Great for setting up new aquariums or when adding or changing water or to remove nitrate. Use 1 ml for each 10 gallons of water. For freshwater or saltwater use. 100 Ml treats 1, 000 gallons; 250 ml treats 2, 500 gallons; 500 ml treats 5, 000 gallons; 2 litre treats 20, 000 gallons. Prime removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. Prime converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tanks bio filter. Prime may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. Prime detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the bio filter to more efficiently remove them. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Prime also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat. Prime is non-acidic and will not impact ph. Principal ingredients: bisulphites and hydrosulphites, aqueous solution, buffered at ph 8, with ameliorating ingredients. Reducing agents.

Turns out my RO system was allowing out a large proportion of solids, chlorine and chloramine kill beneficial bacteria and this is what caused the die off. The Prime sorted that too but it was too late. Anyway...
Dosing with this my ammonia eventually stopped rising at 0.145 (on my seneye - so this is NH3 only, free ammonia). And then started creeping down. Within 6 days my ammonia has come down to 0.002 and no nitrites are registering either - basically fully cycled (again) in this time. I would REALLY recommend this for any startup, or emergency - hand in hand with Prime honestly, i dont think my fish would have survived this.
I have 7 BIG fish in a 1000l tank (marine) - not one casualty due to quick action with this!
Fish seem much happier after switching to this water conditioner. Promotes slime coat on the fish. Only need to use 1/2 a capfull in my 120l tank, so provides a few years use. Definitely aids in keeping the water parameters correct.
Was recommended by a friend. Very impressed during my usage of Prime during the past few months. Would recommend for aquarium keepers, water parameters have never been so stable.
I just wanted to help people using it for ammonia and still getting a high ammonia reading after treatment.
All Seachem products which detoxify ammonia do so to the free ammonia. Most of our tests kits test total ammonia. If you want to accurately check how much of the toxic free ammonia remains, get yourself the MultiTest Ammonia (Free & Total) from Seachem. The test seems a bit of a faff at first, but it's proven invaluable for me at the moment as my once mature filter seems to have crashed and I am struggling through a fish-in cycle as a result.
I can tell you these products work as I can see from the behaviour of my fish.
But, as I have said, you need to test for the Free Ammonia levels after dosing to get a true reflection of how it is working.
