Couldn't tell you what the specs are, mabye a precipitate of some kind but they are considered harmless.

Here is Seachems response, I was curious as well....

Quote:
The black specs are just excess Prime. Prime is as concentrated as we can make it. Sometimes excess will precipitate out and that is what the black specs are.
FYI, Prime is bisulfite and hydrosulfite salts. Although Seachem was not specific, I would surmise the black specs are a precipitate of sulphites.

Cheers
Steve
