Following is a pic of Rid-all products, 4 of these I bought from LFS and 2 I bought from the biggest wholesaler in Delhi, Laxmi Nagar. I suspect that all 4 items that I bought from LFS are duplicates.
Sample A (may be 60ml)- Bought from LFS - A small anti-chlorine bottle given to me by LFS when I bought the tank. From the shabby packaging, I concluded that this is not rid all product.
Sample B (may be 80 ml) - Bought from LFS - This was supposedly a better anti-chlorine product and I considered this to be original product before I bought from the wholesaler.
Sample C (200 ml)- Bought from Wholesaler - This is the latest product that I bought from the biggest wholesaler in Delhi, It has different Rid-all logo, it is almost color less as compared to other two which were green.
Sample D (may be 60ml)- Bought from LFS - This was supposedly anti - itch bottle which was given to me by LFS when I bought the tank, because of its shabby looks I consider it a duplicate.
Sample E (120 ml)- Bought from LFS - I was considering this to be original bottle because of its nice packaing and new rid all logo, i was adding 8 tea spoons of it whenever I changed the water, but blue color in the water was not so strong and will evidently faded away in 1 hour max after adding the medicine.
Sample F (200 ml) - Bought from wholesaler - When I was finished with sample E bottle I started using this bottle for medicine and I was shocked, the blue color was at least 4 times stronger in this one and tank remained blue colored for 1 day and light blue on 2 nd day. That made me think that Sample E was also a duplicate.
Thanks a lot guys for reading through this, and please post your comments so that people who are new to fish keeping like me would be able to avoid these mistakes and give the best medicine and food to their fishes.

I also support you, this is a big problem. The maximum number of LFS sell us Duplicate medicine, which is unhygienic to fishes, it also may cause death to fish due to duplicate medicine. I don't know they do that?
One way to Avoid this, -- Always buy Medicine from a Reputed Medical Store, which may be helpful to Fish Keepers.

It’s horrible these days .... products are duplicated. Humans ranks the No.1 target with adulterated food medicines and what not. You name it and there will be a duplicate or a adulterated product. Sigh!!
Now it’s turn for the fishes. Although they have been suffering for ages in the wild due to polluted water, chemicals, ….. the list is endless and now in our own homes they are becoming victims.
Not sure when we cannot save ourselves how we would save our loved pets from this evil.
Many many thanks Deepak for bringing into notice this misdeed. I heard one incident in Pune where LFS guy was seen manipulating TetraBits.
Lets us join hands and defend our pets to the extent we can.

Thanks a lot friends for all your support, I bought some medicines from the wholesaler and I believe they are real deal because I have matched their covers with people who are selling them on ebay.co.uk and ebay.com, I am not an expert and just a learner but I have noticed few things..
1. Originally imported medicine will have exactly the same packaging as what they are selling online in other countries.
2. They all have same logo at their backs.
3. They all had measuring scale printed on their bottles.
4. The exact quantity will be mentioned on the bottle itself.
5. Packaging will not be shabby and will be very clear.
6. If you have been using duplicates, the difference will be very noticeable when you will use the original.
I have complied all the original rid-all medicine that I have in one big picture, so that you can spot the difference...
As you can see in the above pic
1. In first row you have, RidAll Anti Chlorine, Anti-Ich, General Aid
2. IN Second Row, RidAll Anti-Fungus, Koi and Goldfish Special, Methylene blue 1% B.V.F
3. Showing the measuring Scale
4. the logo on the back of bottles will mention RidAll, 2 in Triangle, HDPE.
Please pardon me friend if I have said something wrong, as I am also just a novice in fish keeping and trying to do my best in getting the best products for them.
