    Can someone please enlighten me as to what the current status of availability of these little blue bottles are...
    Went on an lfs cruise the other day and saw nothing on the shelves..... Even at sponsors with zeostones as avatars..... Didn't bother to ask, guess I should have, but in the past it was displayed on shelves, in cabinets, etc.

    Having been a close follower of the system and its proponents since funky skunk was an "agent" in the early 2000 and something-ish, and an avid user of some of their products which I find value in since 2007....... rather frustrating when I want to go get something specific and I have to hunt around....
    I don't really shop on line.....
    Thank goodness I don't need to change stones or replace my zeobac....

    @Submariner discontinued Zeo... we decided to continue with it as we have great results running Zeo additives on our shops tanks...
    Consider our online service...we offer FREE DOOR TO DOOR delivery, cant get more convenient and secure shopping than this ... ;) I'll send the link to whats in stock...

    My understanding is this is no longer imported as it was?

    Quite rough on people who have been running these systems for a while.

    * edit

    Thanks brian- glad that youre running with it. Its such as awesome system.

    Hi @irie ivan

    After selling zeovit for over three years and total sales of less than R20,000 to retailers we had to pull Zeo from our wholesale list.

    We would love to carry on stocking but due to lack of support from most retailers we could no longer carry the range.

    Im so scared to start zeo again because of availability....
    Questions in my mind....what if they stop stocking it....how long will it take then to get more stock...too expensive so cant afford to stock up....???


    If i can be assured that none of the above will happen..then im going full zeo again...
    Best method ive tried......ever!!!

    And this has been the case as far back as Zeo has been brought in to SA.

    Just out of interest, how much was sold direct to reefers? Understand the problems with continuing it though... just a pity for people who were running it

    @Submariner is the wholesaler. Well, that's the last I heard.

    @Ridwaan valid points...
    on "what if they stop it" ...ask any wholesaler on the forum, I don't bite easily...I take my time to research and test a product, if I like, I get it for our store, use and promote it... I got frustrated when I started the stuff and @Submariner discontinued it just before I became a serious addict, to his defense I must add that the current exchange rate, frustration when the product hits S.A. to get it cleared and delivered etc. almost doesn't make it worth the effort for retailing it...BUT:

    I'm hooked and placed our second order containing everything they offer (except for the hardware...hell no that I'll get if someone really wants that hahaa)...the products are really our stores addiction, I have it on our shelves and online shop if others want to benefit from it...

    On pricing and stock: R300 - R600+ per bottle is a downer yup, keep in mind though that they are like 1 drop per 100L The last bottles I used got me 8 months for store use...! They are very economical in the long run. Expiry dates on them are late 2015/2016. On delivery it takes around 4 days to reach S.A....then we pray for a miracle and wait...lol
