A begginer's question about Seachem Excel

Hi!

I bought a bottle of Seachem Excel and a bottle of Seachem Potassium for my small Cuba's.

I just recieved them. Potassium looks alright, similar to my Florish. But Seachem Excel has a weird child-protected cap on it. But it doesn't close tight! The bottle has still have its seal on. Is that the case? Will it be a tightly closed after I remove the seal? Because on the cap it says close tightly. I can't for now. If the cap is broken, I need a replacement.

Sorry for a real begginer question, thanks!

I'm sure its fine. Pull the seal and find out. These caps are pretty notorious for sucking...

If it has a bad cap, don't want to open the seal before returning. Hmm maybe I can change the bottle with something else. No need a fancy cap, its hard to open that.

IF that cap leaks and you have to send it back, it willb e fine. You are really over thinking this.

I always replace the Flourish Excel caps with old caps from API Leafzone. The fit better and have measurements in them. Great Dosing Caps.
