They include shipping in the price and AFA does not usually...when I looked at AS it was about the same if you include shipping.

Yeah 4"...tank is 24" high so that gives me 20" for the water, which will help light reach the bottom anyways.

We're increasingly going over to a free shipping model - there are a few new additions to it as we line it all up.

The next stage will be further incentives and discounts for certain purchases!

The powder type had a bad batch made during manufacturing, so ADA pulled it during the fall, so we did not receive any this go around. It will again be available in March!

Crap! This messes up my plans! How does regular AS look in a mini tank?

We never received any of the bad batch powder type - as ADA threw it all away, but they just notified us that there was a problem with the refinement process and they would not be sending out any new bags until they re-manufacture it.

Frrokk- normal doesn't look bad in a Nano, it just looks a little large initially, but once plants grow in you don't notice it.
