Sharpchick Seachem handles this question in their FAQs. They say one batch may be one color and another, another color. BUT - they say, it has absolutely no effect on the product.

Zorfox I believe iron becomes red when it absorbs oxygen (oxidation). Basically you have a bottle of rust lol

Seattle_Aquarist Hi syzygy9,

Per Seachem it has basically an unlimited shelf life but any of their products with iron in them will discolor over time.

Seachem Flourish Iron question

OK...odd question, but does this stuff change color over time? I just finished the last of my 250ml bottle that I'd bought maybe 1.5 to 2 yrs ago and it was red...really really deep dark red, but I just opened my brand new bottle at it's a yellowish color (and yes I shook it up well).

Shortly after buying the first bottle I switched to dry EDTA iron dosing for about 6-9 months and then switched back so I don't remember what color it started off.
