Where to buy Aquasoil

Hello- I'm new to both Illinois and planted tanks. I'm setting up a small pico planted tank and wanted to put in either ADA Aquasoil or UP Aquasoil, but the shipping is really high. Is there a local store that might sell either? Somewhere in the western suburbs preferably.

Thanks!

-Brandon

I've never seen it at any LFS's in the area. You might have to order online or go out of state to a store that does carry it

I don't know Aurora, but used to work/live in Schaumburg. There are several good fish stores there. I don't remember the name but there was a good one in Hoffman Estates on 58, I think it was north of 72. Also there was one of the big chains at 72 and Roselle Rd that had an enhanced fish section. I don't remember if it was a Petsmart or Petco, ? not sure, but they had a great plant section and all the toys.
