Default Seachem Flourish colour & smell....

Hi All -

I decided to try seachem's flourish this past weekend.... Upon opening the bottle at home I noticed that the product is quite a lot darker than all of the other previous products I have been using (it's almost black) and quite smelly (sulphury)...

Just wondering if this was normal? Is this product just uber concentrated or has it gone bad?

TIA,
jbot

Flourish is dark and very smelly. It will darken a bit more after being open for a while, unless you use it very fast

Did you get Flourish or Flourish Excel?
To me :flourish looks and smells like soy sauce
:flourish excel looks clear and smells like formaldehyde( don't get any in your mouth, it hurts your tongue and ruins you sense of taste for the day!)

Whoops! Yeah, I meant FLOURISH.... Not Excel (I wonder why I wrote that down...).

Thanks for pointing it out to me neonfish!

I won't ask if you've tried flourish as well!

....to me flourish tastes like it smells. After I smelled it, I had to taste it. I would have sworn someone was playing a joke on me, and put soy sauce in my bottle of flourish.
I got the Excel in my mouth by accident, licked my fingers after spilling some on them.
