I've always used prime and it never gave me any problems... and most people here seem to like it more too... I don't remember their price comparison, but last time I had to buy more prime gave me more bang for my buck.

I used Amquel exclusively for the last 15 years because I was skeptical about using so little Prime but now that I know Prime works, spending a ton of money on Amquel just seems ridiculous.

I use prime also. There was one time I had to use Amquel+ because we were having high nitrates in the water and it helped to remove most of it.
