I know there are others who disagree with me, but I don't like Florabase
because to me, it looks like dog kibble.<g>  I haven't seen the Carib-Sea
product out of it's bag full of water, so I can't comment on the aesthetics.
I have to say, however, that I'm not sure that there is any benefit to
anyone but the marketing team to transporting liquid-filled bags of
substrate.  It makes them heavier, and if I were the shop keeper, I wouldn't
be keen on having them potentially get punctured and wet down everything
else on the shelves.
