anyware in NYC to get SMS or Turface??

I know that they have distributers in LI, but I was looking for something closer. I did find a thread about ecotanker finding oildry product that's supposed to be similar to SMS, but not sure if it's good or not.

Another thing is that I'm trying to swap out about 50LBS of regular river rock gravel out of my 75 gallon and putting one of these in instead. How should I do that? I guess put all my fish into large plastic storage bins? (would it be strong enough to hold that much water?)

not sure about the oildry but the storage containers will hold water. I have one that holds about 25 gals and is clear that I use to raise guppy fry in. just look close to the top of them where the handles are some of them have small holes. that I just use tank silicone to seal them.

I went there already, that how I found that the closest distributers were in Long island. I was hoping someone knew of a place that carried it that might not be on the list.

If you find it and have some extra, would you mind splitting it up?

I'm looking to replace the substrate in my 16 gal for something dark. Can't justify buying a 30-40 lb bag when I'll only need a fraction of it.

Free Chimonanthus praecox seeds. PM me.
