~~~, I get your point, I guess, but it sounds like you assume the only reason we purchased was because the market said we should. Maybe I go too far. I, however, am in the early stages of a 240 gallon plan. I don't have the tank, but I will. I can fund this much now. Maybe the deal won't be around when I need the rest of it, so at least I saved some ducats on part of it. Doesn't mean you were wrong, since maybe it will be cheaper later, but I took a chance. If you are in the market for EC, this is a good deal. If you don't need it now, it might still be a good deal.
