    Safe is just the powdered version of prime! Ive never used it as I believe that no chemical additive can replace 0tds water.
    Its basically for guys that uses tap water (which is never a good idea with marines!)
    Ive only used PRIME once when i regenerated some purigen a couple years ago to remove the ammonia from the regenerated purigen. Other than that, I wont use it im my tanks ever.

    I was sold a bottle today! Saving for an RO unit and currently buy RO water from Oasis I don't trust the TDS reading so was suggested I use seachem safe?
