Seachem prime is very good. It also removes ammonia and lots of people use it on shrimp tanks without problems.

Easycoat try not to over dose i asked API personel before for advice.

I personally use EasyLife anti chlorine and it worked wonders
since i started my shrimp keeping hobby till now

hmm...ok i will invest the big bottle after this bottle end. i was like holding the 300ml & i saw the 2L, i put down the 300ml, pick up the 2L n ask the price. 0_0 (shock) put back the 2L & pay for the 300ml lol~ didnt expact it to so x... cos i know Api 2L only cost around 2 red note. then i realise the usage is diff. for prime 5ml dose each 200L of water. as for Api 5ml dose each 40L of water.
correct me if im wrong.

Prime is a proven to work well and is highly concentrated. It is safe to overdose it but I always try not to but dosing 20L only take a drop or so.

I would not go into buying biggest bottle if I cannot use them fast.

Some of such products has stability problem.
