Black floaties in Prime?

I just noticed my bottle of prime has black things floating in it. Does it normally have that? I've never noticed it before, and the bottle isn't that old.

Small world: I was changing my water last night and looked into my bottle of Prime to see how much I had left and I also noticed the black stuff in it. However, mine weren't floating, but were like a sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Mine would have been the same I think, but my bottle was laying down and then I picked it up to use it. Stirred it up.

Too funny.

I have noticed it too. In multiple bottles.

I'm not worried.

Never show anyone your true potential. If you do, they will always expect it.

Hey, it's in my bottle too. At the bottom.
I would have never looked if i had not seen this thread.
I assuming it's normal since you all have it too.
