Rotten Egg Smell...FROM MY STRESS COAT BOTTLE???
I just popeed open my gallon sized jug of Stress Coat and was struck by a toxic rotten egg smell! I know that rotten egg smells generally are NOT good so I am going to toss the rest of the product. I opened another jug and it smells fine.
ANY IDEAS??? :shock:
I buy stress coat by the gallon as well. I have not opened any smelly ones yet. Dont know what it could be, but I would be afraid to use it too!
Maybe something got in it and rotted?
If the smell is very different from normal I wouldn't use it. Not that anything I put in the tank smells truly wonderful but my bottle of prime doesn't knock me on my butt with a rancid smell.
Hmm I dunno, Prime is pretty rank. It's got some sulfur salts in it that do all of the magic, so it ends up being a bit stinky. Not knock-you-on-your-butt stinky, but not pleasant. I'm not sure what the active ingredients in StressCoat are, but if it's something similar I wouldn't be surprised.
My stess coat does not realy have any odor to it. I stuck my nose in the jug to see. Was this a new bottle? Did it have the saftey seal on it?
Yeah, Prime's not that great, but I don't think stress coat really smells much at all. If you're used to no smell then get something really foul in the next bottle I wouldn't use it personally.
I Love the smell of Prime in the morning!8) Sometimes wish Icould shrink myself down and go swimming with my fishes.
Must be a mix of something with the stress coat
I'll cop to the fact that I don't mind the smell of Prime at all. For some reason when I do my water chage I twist off the cap, take a quick whiff, and proceed with my water change. I have no idea why I do this as Prime has such a distinctive, unpleasant smell.
