Cinnebuns Posted August 6, 2022 Share Posted August 6, 2022 I have a feeling this is a bunch of hogwash but I've been researching just in case. I haven't found anything but I wanna see if anyone else knows. Can prime kill live bearers? The source is super unreliable. Some dude on Facebook saying some dude told him that's why his fish died. Ok, not trusting that, but I also like to research before I fully discredit something like this. The theory goes like this: the sulfur in the prime irritates their mucus membranes forcing them to create their own mucus. The claim is that "good" conditioners have built in protection. The sulfur apparently is not good for the fish and some cannot tolerate it at all. My thing is this: 1. Prime is not only recommended as the #1 conditioner by dozens of experts and articles I've read vs "some dude on Facebook heard it from some dude." 2. Prime is built in stress coat which should be the "built in protection" he's talking about right? 3. I have no idea about the effects of sulfur on fish but all I found is that it can interact with some ich meds. Thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
