Prime just raises your total dissolved solids. With Crystals, that's something you need to keep in check at all times. Best only to use it if it's necessary.

Unless your tank gets below 50, you probably won't ever need a heater. I only use them in tanks with heavy breeding and in areas where I can't keep things 60 and up.
