stress zyme

I've been using the api stress coat and stress zyme.
I have an established 29 gallon, marineland canister, co2 and dose EI.
I have been pndering cutting out using the stress zyme all together. I have a sponge on my intake than has been in use for almost a year so I think i have all the proper bacteria and such.
I was thinking of switching to prime to instead of stress coat.
thoughts??

Once your tank is cycled, there shouldn't be much of a need to continue adding Stress Zyme, unless you clean the filter thoroughly for some reason.

And Prime is far more concentrated than Stress Coat, I use it quite a bit

Be careful with stress coat. I killed fish using it at higher concentrations.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Switch to Prime, you'll use 1 capful (5ml) per 50 gallons of water. It's so much more concentrated than Stress Coat
