FAQ: How often can I dose Prime?

Prime will bind ammonia into a non toxic form for 48 hours and allows for the removal via your tank's bio-filter (beneficial bacteria). If ammonia still persists after 48 hours, you can re-dose every 48 hours as necessary until ammonia levels reach 0 ppm.

 If you are not detoxifying ammonia, but are instead carrying out very frequent water changes (more frequent than every 48 hours) and are dosing Prime for the purpose of preparing new water for the tank, we recommend to treat all new water with an appropriate dose of Prime (5 mL per 50 gallons of water) before it is added into the system.  This will prevent unnecessary overdoses in the main system.
