anyone buy API stress coat recently?

i bought one recently, and i noticed that it smells different.
the one i had before (w/ picture of aloe plant on it) smelled like Vicks or minty.
and this one has a new look and it smells, idk how to describe it, like grass or something. did they change the ingredients or formula?

I just bought a new bottle...smells like always. The last bottle I had however, had a terrible sulfur smell to it that got worse over time. It was just...off so I tossed it.

Does you bottle this time have a picture of aloe on it?
API has water condition and stress coat +
then it has regual water conditionor.. maybe you got the wrong one?

it doesn't have the picture of aloe on it, but it says stress coat + water conditioner. i just checked the website, and it's the same as the one i have now. and it has the same directions and description as the one w/ aloe picture.

and i don't have matches around the house so.. idk what it smells like o_o

the only difference is the smell and the thickness. it's not as thick as the one i had before, more watery.

I noticed my store has the new bottles, but they had some old bottles too. I bought the old bottle as I don't like change lol When I am forced to buy a new bottle (I have two large ones here) then I'll check the smell :)

The bottles here have the aloe plant on them, but I noticed there is a newer looking bottle at the store.
Upon second look at mine...
My new big bottle says "Stress Coat +, replaces slime coat and reduces electrolyte loss. Removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia"
My older smaller bottle says "Stress Coat, replaces slime coat, reduces electrolyte loss, promotes tissue regeneration. Removes chlorine, neutralizes chloramines."

Mine are totally different. Whut?
