Good tip. Thanks a lot.

Does Jon's have all the goodies, or just limited things?

Botia,

Thanks for the info on local suppliers. I went to Supterstore in Metrotown today and they have switched from GE to Sylvania supply for most of their lights. However they only have the Sunsticks and two types of regular Sylvanica tubes. Very poor selections. Which particular SS did you see the Grolux please ? Who other than Superstores carries the Sylvania Grolux standard ? Who carries the Grolux wide spectrum ?

Thanks.

So, what do you Vancouverites do for CO2 fills? Any good sources for valves, gauges, and so on for CO2 hackers?

i just bought a tank from a fire extinguisher company in richmond and bought the rest of the reg, etc from aquabotanic. canada buck is good now so it really made financial sense. tried diy for a few months but what a hassle...just not worth the time muckin' around for me personally.

Anyone in vancity or surrounding areas seen Blue Rams for sale?

Bonsai_Swamp: Glass-Gardens has a great deal on right now for a regulator and CO2 controller. Shipping to Canada is very reasonable.

CO2 Tanks 20 lbs
 
Ok I just picked up a co2 tank 20lbs for $125 + tax CND at this store

COAST WELDING SUPPLIES & RENTALS LTD
6870 Merritt Avenue, Burnaby, BC V5J4R6
(604) 205-5288

that's pretty reasonable considering they're aroudn $200 ~ $250 at hydroponic stores (i've found that fire estingister (spelling error) places charge the most $100 for a 5 lb'er

just curious what exactly did you buy for your PMDD at this store?

I'm just using tropica master grow and seachem's flourish for now, do i save that much using pmdd?

BTW I am thinking of buying a PH controller from the states. Does anybody has done it before and can tell me what they need to pay for custom brokerage fees, duties, PST and GST etc ? What is best way to ship ? Thanks.
