I think you can get it off Amazon pretty cheap if you have Prime. I remember bookmarking it. Lemme see if I can find the exact price.

So 4.4 lbs is $11.47 shipped with prime and 8.8 lbs is $19.38 shipped with prime.

I'm not member of prime, then i have to pay shipping

FSS isnt eligible for Prime. it ships for free in 3-5 business days. Fishtown USA, kissena aquarium and pacific sell this locally.

If you are new to shrimp keeping, this substrate can used immediately however the enzymes and biofilm necessary to support shrimp will require several weeks to develop. I am not referring to the beneficial bacteria of your traditional fish tank, which of course needs to cycle in due course to process waste. Anyway, I digress. Search online and you'll likely find many places for this substrate.

Get your cart to $25 worth of this or other things and it ships free. Some items may not qualify so look for the "FREE Super Saver Shipping".

If you're a student with a school e-mail, I think you can get a free month trial. Which is awesome since then you can get 2 day shipping on all prime stuff too.

actually you get a 6 Month trial!

I just passed by Pacific Aquarium in Chinatown the other day. I think they have it for $15, the smaller size (3 lbs?) They also have a generic one similar to it for $30 (around 10-15 lbs) I find that BK 8th Ave. aquariums have cheaper equipment so you could try there too.
