I should try that over here then in the future. I'm going to be taking out my gravel and putting this stuff in... I don't know if it will work or not though with the whole trade off. The managers I've seen over here are kinda crabby and strict. Does petco have this stuff? If not I will try petsmart.

Just thought you in particular would like to know that I just pulled this off tonight too. I got 2 bags for 9.99 each. I bet they loose money doing that! Sorry, I just had to rub it in!

I doubt they do loose money. I bet you all these places probably get these bags dirt cheap. If not how could bigals and petsolutions sell so cheap? I just assume petsmart has that much of a markup on their products. How I look at it, they make enough money ripping off unsuspecting customers that pay full price at their stores. Some of us walking in every once in awhile and getting flourite for a cheaper price isn't going to hurt their bottom line at all.

At my local petsmart I had one manager who had no problems price matching me, and then I got the night-time manager once and she was a little hesitant until I told her that the daytime manager told me to bring in any ad and he'll pricematch me anything. I told here I would just leave and make sure I never came into their store again. Of course she ended up pricematching me.

The crazy thing is I think 9.99 is really close to cost (my LFS was shocked that petsmart does the matching). I guess one way of looking at it, the overall loss to petsmart is negligable especially when they sell all the other stuff like dog and cat grooming, food, horse stuff, lizards, etc. Maybe we should "stock" up and take advantage of this while we can!!! (I think I may actually have an extra bag once I'm done with my move to use for another tank)
