Hello,

No, not a good idea. Mixing chemicals is never a good idea, and right after stirring up everything in the tank, makes it a very bad time to do so. After a water change, you should use only Aquasafe out of the ones you mentioned. Easy Balance is supposed to be added once a week, and not after a water change. Florapride should be added once a month, and not after any other chemical as chemicals could remove the fertilizer or make it ineffective. Algae Control is a very strong chemical and should never be used with any other chemical at all. Dose once a month as a preventative, or once every three days for up to three doses, for an algae issue. Do NOT overdose.

AmmoniaSafe or EasyBalance will do it, but SafeStart will help regulate it as well.

Question

Is this also a water conditioner?

Does this product make water safe for fish or would I need to continue using a separate product like Betta Safe for that. Also, if I do need two separate products when would I use the Flora Pride? I do 50% water changes every three days, all though I usually make the water at least one day in advance so it is the same temperature as my tanks.

No, it does not condition the water, or remove chlorine. The only thing it does is fertilize the plants. Follow the instructions on the back of the package. You usually will use once a month. However, as you do a lot of water changes, you will need to experiment a bit, and we would recommend starting wtih once a week.

No, it does not disturb the biological filter at all, but we would recommend using it only after you are done medicating the tank.
