It does smell sulfuric. Perfectly normal. Plug your nose when you use it.lol

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

That is the usual smell. It's disgusting, isn't it? I believe the label mentions that a bad smell is normal and I've also read on Seachem's website that the sulphur-like smell is completely normal. It's worth it though. It works great. I cycled my tank with it and I didn't lose a single fish!

Ever since I have started using it all of my levels have stayed in check. I will never use anything else.

Do fish get thirsty?

I love the smell of Prime in the morning!

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

If you are looking to dose prime on an amount of water less than 50 gallons I recommend using a 2-5ml plastic syringe. I got mine for free from my LFS when I was buying ferts, but you can purchase them at any pharmacy if you ask for an oral syringe. Obviously you can just eyeball it without hurting your fish but if you are looking to save a little money in the long run an oral syringe is the way to go.
