I have an old bottle of flatworm stop that expires on 08/2020. I opened it and used maybe 1/4 of it 9 months ago. Do you guys think this will be OK to use again? I miss the colors I used to get when I would dose it and the bottle was $130 so I would hate to just chunk it.
Any insight?

When it comes to exit follow the directions. It sounds like you have used it before but I always do the full dose first and then a week later 50% more then a full dose to really knock them out. My two cents. And yes.. the stuff is still good.

I don’t have flatworms, I just really enjoy the increase in coloration that I just can’t get without it. I also keep up water changes to make sure whatever it is, it isn’t accumulating too much

If its not a bacteria source like zeobak and zeostart3 its ok to dose even pass the expiration date but not too long.

I'm gonna start on it and if I like it I'll pony up another $130 for a fresh bottle. I just put it on a doser so I'm excited to see any changes
