Black floaty stuff in new bottle of prime?


Just opened up a new bottle of prime and inside the bottle I see what looks like little flecks of black (like particles of carbon). The bottle also doesn't really smell like sulfer like my last one.

Is this weird?

The black floaties are normal for a bottle of prime. As for the smell... Prime has it's own characteristic smell.

Seachem states that the black flecks are normal. I have had some bottles that have them and some that don't.
