Old 'stuff'

I'm looking at setting up a tank after 4years from tearing down my last one. I'm going through all my 'stuff', and found a bunch of osmocote tabs, an almost full bottle of Flourish Excel and an API Master Test Kit.

I know the test kit is toast, no way it's not way past expiry, but what about the osmocote tabs and Excel? Do they ever expire?

I'm tossing all the old food and stuff, I'm not sure what kind of fish I'll get yet and want to start fresh. But can I salvage the other stuff? I forgot I had it and planned on getting more, but I'd rather use what I can rather than replace if possible.

I have used a 2 year old Seachem pack including Excel which seemed to work. That said, there were only a couple weeks' doses left. It's worth a try.
