    Ok guys, so I've been told by numerous people to use this water conditioner as it not only binds ammonia for 48 hours when water changing but also lasts a lot longer due to being concentrated.

    I've also read about its "putrid sulphur smell"

    Now the smell in the bottle won't really bother me, what I want to know is, will it make my tank water stink?

    I think I've noticed some smell in the water I add back in, but it goes away after a few minutes. It makes your fingers smell though, even if you don't really touch the liquid :dead:

    A few mins I don't mind. I've just bought 500ml which I think should last a long time :)

    My wife will notice the smell if she walks in as I am dosing. I tell her it was the dog

    nop , it only smells within the bottle and even at that isn't as bad as most make it out to be IMO.

    Also, just as a warning, some smell like nothing and some smell awful. It's a toss up which you'll get.

    But agreed with above posters; it doesn't make the water stink.

    The first couple times I used it I smelled it in my tank water, but I don't anymore. I've kinda gotten used to the smell, but even after I take it out of my drawer just to condition a jug of water a family member could come in 20 minutes later and notice the smell. I'm so immune to it now, haha!
