Hi Guys

Hi Kris
Not that I am aware of at all.
Can I have the batch details of the bottle and where did you buy it from please?
Come back to me and Ill have a look at our retention samples.
I don't think we needed this as a subject on our forum an Email, phone call or PM would have received a reply as well.

I'd prob like to add.. so was mine. It sorta looks like egg soup. I dosed one cap full into my system and it was all chunky and white..

I did initially panicked.. but i did a big water change just incase something bad was gonna happen.. ive been using it for a while now and its normally just a clear liquid.. I just binned my big bottles worth. :/

I spoke with Julian in person about this on Friday Morning and there is nothing to be concerned about.
Julian makes product for Australia in batches (so we get the longest possible exp dates).
As the batch is being produced it is possible for the last of the batch to stop recirculating in the vat before the last of it is bottled. This basically means these few bottles (and we import a lot of Acro Power) get extra.
There is also a need to shake the product before use and settling will occur.
Kris just return your bottle and i will replace it for you. Please include your day time address and phone number with your bottle.

Thanks for the followup.

if julian himself says it will be alright then im fine with that. i have been using it for the past week, everything seems happy and the lumps eventually dissolve in the tank.
