    Has anyone bought prime off of amazon and had black stuff in it??
    The prime we got from petco didn’t... just making sure something isn’t wrong with it.


    Thank you!

    I’m new to using prime. And I’m blind so didn’t know. And don’t know if that’s normal or not. Hopefully someone else will. Interesting.

    Q:
    I think that my Prime might be old because it smells like it went bad
    A: Prime has a very distinct odor that is similar to sulfur, which is completely normal. Also, the presence of small black specks is normal.

    Found this on F and S

    Honestly if you are questioning anything from Amazon just return it because their return policy is great and either get it from a store or chewy or order it again... seriously I ordered a light from Amazon and selected the pick up at my for option because it didn't work and they picked it up and returned it free of charge, money was back in my account next day.....

    Just checked :) don’t see any spots.
    If you’re concerned just return/replace it.
    Another poster above mentions it’s normal, so if the next bottle has it as well I wouldn’t be overly concerned

    That’s what I want! I’ll drill a well! Lol

    SeaChem says it’s normal as long as you shake the bottle. Seems to be working.
