  • Seachem Prime - iminium salt question

    Based on the link/post below from your Research Manager, I'd like to know how long do the ammonia-bound iminium salts last after the 24-48 hour time frame? They cannot simply convert back to Ammonia as some of you have stated in the past that it only "may" revert; and, one even mentioned that...

  • Nitrification - RO Water with Discus Buffer

    I recently changed all my aquarium water over to RO water and buffered it to a 6.8 pH using Neutral Regulator and Discus buffer and a GH of 3 using Equilibrium. The water was all prepared in a drum before being added to the aquarium. The biological filter was not affected by this change... it is a sponge...
