The interesting thing is I know that Petsmart stores definitely match their own website prices. There is a HUGE difference in what they sell online verses when you walk in the store.

oh man, I was at petsmart today. I couldn't find any eco-complete, any sort of sand or fluorite, just plain old gravel. Maybe they've been selling lots of substrate lately.
That price difference is retarded, I would never buy it at that price. Just knowing other people paid half that amount would drive me insane every time I looked at it.

Well, I just got back from Petsmart a few hours ago with a bag of Flourite for $9.99. (The store near me does have Eco-complete too). I took the "Petsolutions.com" online price with me and to quote the manager "that is a REALLY good price". No problems and no worries. He just rang it up at 9.99...which they sell for $24.99. That is just insane!!

Man I am really thinking about switching to ecco-complete or flourite, if I can get it so cheap locally. I'm just not sure if I should go through all the effort. Any suggestions on how to change substrate? I've seen a post on this somewhere else that recommended changing half, waiting a week then changing the other half. Anyone do this? I have a 10 gallon thats setup already in the other room, with just a sponge filter in it, could I move the fish over there and change everything out all at once? I would rather do it all at once, less headaches.
