    Bottle that is.....

    If you saw these in the store and had never used/seen them before, which one would you choose?

    I prefer the old bottle ( right ) and looked all over the store passing it up a few times ( the new bottle ) because I didn't "recognize" it..... The price even went up a few cents too :mad:

    I'd go for the old bottle, it always concerns me when they change packaging that they might have also changed the formulation of the product too, they probably haven't but I always have to check

    We've had the new packaging on Seachem products for a while now.... I did the same thing as you at first :giggle: Completely did not recognise the bottle as Seachem.

    Nothing to worry about really - Seachem have gone through a brand re-imaging. Most all of their products now have new labels.

    The new bottle reminds me of a dodgy Chinese brand bottle that i tried ages ago and ended up killing all my fish and even a complete tear down and clean couldn't get my tank fish safe.

    Lol....I ordered a 2L / 67.6 oz bottle through Amazon & was surprised the packaging had changed. I thought it was an older label not new - I believe I would have passed it over in a store just like you did Junne☺

    I didn't even know they had a new bottle. I've only ever seen the one on the right.

    I like the old. When I received one I ordered from Amazon, I thought they sent me a wrong one as Prime is the only Seachem product I use. I had to double check and make sure it was the real Prime.

    It seemed like such a drastic change... Just as long as the contents are the same and not watered down or anything. I haven't opened it.... Maybe they found a way to get rid of the awful "rotten egg" smell.....;:barf

    Change is hard for some.....

    I like the new bottle. Sleek design. Looks a bit more professional and not like a 5 year old did it in photoshop like the old bottle IMO.

    Thanks for posting the pic. Like many, I would have probably looked right at it on the shelf and not known what it was :p
    I usually buy mine online by the gallon. I can't find gallon jugs sold locally.
