Hm... I hope the seller was reputable. I generally stay away from buying opened ferts/treatments and what not.

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

It's a sulpha based substance, so smelling like rotten eggs is normal.

Been using Prime for years. It's second nature for me to not breathe through my nose when I open the bottle lol

Sulpher salts and yes it does smell vile but you get used to it.
For the small doses you need i find the easiest way to treat is using a 1ML syringe or glass pippet to dose
