Q&A Letter Spotlight

Matt writes to Bob about: Aquarium Supplements

Hi Bob, A reader (Illya Cheng) has recently contacted us regarding some Liquid Life BioPlankton he has purchased. I have read that this is a product you've got some experience of, hence the email via the experts service. He is concerned that the product he has purchased is out of date (the bottle is stamped 05/10/04) and that it might not be safe to use in his reef tank. His dealer has told him, incorrectly I think, that US dates are the reverse of UK ones, so the product actually goes out of date on 4th Oct 2005, rather than 5th October 2004... If you could give an expert opinion more.
