  • Anyone use Seachem Safe?

    Who has used Seachem Safe? Anyone have the dosing chart? Trying to figure out how much to dose in my tanks. The range from 5G - 125G.

    If anyone is interested in trying it, I found a 1 kg jar for only $22 on Amazon.com.

    great stuff, the powder equivelant to Seachem's Prime. same thing. I have been using this stuff for a couple years now. 1 KG last me about a year and I have 310 gl of tanks total.
    if anyone wonders if $22 is a good deal, I think I paid $75 for mine back in March of this year.
    Dena, I don't know of a dosing chart but if you happen to find one send it my way. I did what you are doing, ask around. I got from a trusted source that 1/4 tsp treats 50 gl.
    Oh, thanks Dena for the heads up, for that price i better get stocked up.

      I love Seachem Prime and have used it for years. Since upgrading from my 125 to a 240, I wanted a more cost effective conditioner. I'm currently waiting for my order of Seachem Safe to come in. I went with the 1kg jar as well and am looking forward to using it.

        I have been using Safe for a few months now. Still have a small amount of Prime I use on my smaller tanks. Have no complaints. I use so little that the 1kg jar should last a very long time, even with all my tanks

          I've been using this reference table on my 55 freshwater and 5 gallon freshwater breeder for years, hasn't failed me yet, but don't hold me to it.
          Also, please remember, these amounts are to be used on the water going in to your tank, not the total amount held by the tank;
          E.G. if you have a 50 gallon tank and you did a 25%/12 gallon water change/removal, you would treat that 25%/12 gallons, not the 50 total held by you tank, if not careful, you just overdosed the tank and potentially have a catastrophic failure, so be careful, "fish are our friends"

            Thanks for the info!

            I did buy a jar but have discovered, over time, that it doesn't work good. My water has heavy metals which Safe doesn't touch according to Seachem. Plus the nasty fact I am the unlucky recipient of radioactive radon 222 in my tap....something else that Safe doesn't touch.

            Add the fact that Radon breaks down into lead I cannot use a product that can't detox or remove heavy metals. I lost many breeders until I figured out what was going on. Switched back to Prime and the world was again right.

            While Safe is often referred to as "powdered Prime" it definitely is not even close.
