  • Thoughts on zeobak bottle

    The thread on RC about testing zeobak has got me thinking. You know that funny plastic thing that comes in the neck of the bottle? I wonder if the point of it is to prevent contamination?

    Theoretically, you can shake out drops without putting anything in the bottle. In practicality, it doesn't work great, and many of us are using syringes from Salifert kits. It occurs to me that there is potential for contamination every time we insert the syringe.

    Does anyone know why they don't use a dropper cap like the zeofood and supplement bottles?

    Tom, I can't say for sure but I think it might be hard to find a dropper/lid combo for a bottle that small. In the large ZEObac bottles it comes with the dropper like the ZEOfood7.

        Tom, great question. I have never asked Thomas if that was the reason he doesn't use a dropper, I always assumed there were no droppers available for the small bottle. FWIW, the larger bottle ZEObak comes with a dropper. But, I will ask him about contamination issues just to be sure...

            Christine made several valid points in a recent post, but it seems people just overread them...

              My friend is a scientist and got me a dropper to fit that bottle. I agree the design is yet to be desired. I hope they do make a new design for it, larger bottle same amounts or something like that, I know they make droppers that small. Go to you local college and talk to them, you can even get one from medicine for a child, they have small bottle necks like that and you can cut the plastic stick a bit to get it to fit in there

              “no honey don’t throw away that empty bottle, “Scott don’t tell me you are going to use this for your fish crap” why no honey errrr um its for my car, yeah that’s it, my car”

                      I keep the white thing in there. It seems to cut down on the creeping white stuff.

                      I have to remove it each time I dose, but it only takes a second.
