Tetra SafeStart -- did I get a bad bottle?

I can't recall if my first bottle of TSS had any sort of seal, but the one I recently purchased at Petco was capped, but had no internal seal on the bottle opening. Also, it has lots of green particles...almost looks like algae. My first bottle contained simply a cloudy liquid. Are either of these things normal?

TSS doesn't have any seal which is kinda dumb since we can't tell if it's been tampered with or not.

It should be clear/cloudy liquid.

Darn, I may have to return this bottle, then.

Thing is, unless the bottle has been transported and stored under about 30C, it turns semi useless.
I's rather just get prime and dose for a week as per instructions on the bottle.

Hi. I'm back.
