Does anyone use Safe[the powder form of Prime]and can it be premixed with water to make it easier to dose or do you just use the powder from the container? thanks

Seems, I remember, it has limited stability when reconstituted. Something like 48 hours. It doesn't have the stabilizers that are found in Prime.

I use Safe exclusively also, and I have the same recollection that Jeff5614 has about it. If you don't get a definitive answer here, you can pose the question on Seachem's website. They are really good about responding.

I know folks who premix it, and I do it to a limited extent, using distilled water, but I try to use it pretty quickly, for the reasons Jeff5614 suggested.
