I haven't, but I should add though that my selection is mainly the pinched crawlers and the floating trout worms in an assortment of colors. If I look closely on some of the brighter colored baits like the chartreuse pinched crawlers, I can see small flakes of darker colors on them from the natural colored worms. This mind you is after being swished around in the same container for almost a year and as I said, I have to inspect them pretty closely to see this, so I don't think it will affect the baits at all.
I believe that the juice from the different baits is all pretty much the same, but am not positive on this (If somebody knows otherwise, please correct me on this). The recharge juice that they sell to add to the containers when the original gets low, only comes in one variety, so that is what leads me to believe that the same juice is used universally (I do know that some of the trout baits say they are enhanced with garlic scent, so I'd think this would get diluted over time if mixed with the refill or other baits). I emailed Berkley customer support about this, but didn't not get a reply. I went ahead and purchased a refill of the recharge juice and added it to my container anyway because it was a little low and I didn't want my baits to dry up (which Gulp will do if left out of the solution). If the browns, brookies and rainbows tell me they don't like what I am offering this year as much as the previous year, I will probably begin to suspect that my assumption that all the juice is the same may not be accurate.

Smead, that is probably a good suggestion for the Tupperware containers that Berkley sells (or probably any Tupperware you want to store liquid baits in) if one wants different sizes than the Plano liqua bait container. I guess I still feel a little more comfortable with the screw on cap that comes with the Plano option. Again, I didn't mind combining different baits into an assortment, so it makes sense to just keep one of the larger containers on hand. The original containers that Gulp Alive is sold in leak no matter how tight the cap is on though, so a transfer to some other container is necessary no matter what unless one is sure that the baits will be kept upright and not be jostled around too much.
