    Authentic ZEOvit supplements, compliments of distributor Proline Aquatics.

    Heavily discounted ZEOvit products began popping up in Hong Kong roughly one year ago with reports of them being fake. Now some are saying these knock offs are spreading to Taiwan and different parts of China. We cannot confirm that these truly are fake ZEOvit supplements, after all we don’t know what exactly is in ZEOvit. However, there has been enough noise on this topic in Asi, that it is worth noting if purchasing ZEO items there.

    Reefers in China are saying the labels look nearly identical; some have stated they look photocopied. The bottles themselves are truly identical, but this is because the cobalt blue PET bottles can be purchased from many plastic and glassware suppliers.

    True or not, this is heads up for those aquarists in Asia–seek reputable dealers.

      It seems as if there have been stories about fake Reefers Best Salt too – saw a thread about it on the zeovit forum, but was Australian based issue. I’m sure the fake ZEOvit range is being pumped out of some tiny little gutter in some part of the world. Hopefully Thomas and the German crew can find away to ensure the real products can be properly identified by hobbyists world wide.

      …today is not the day for scammers and the likes, in the space of 2 hours I’ve had to tell, and not in a polite manner, scammers where to put their ‘payments’ etc.

      Fake zeovit is not even a news in asia, even back 4 or 5 years ago when zeo was not even as popular as now, there were fakes and knock-off circulating around asia.
