Default Any interest in Akadama? Seattle/Tacoma Area?

EDIT: Instead of starting a new thready I thought that I would just use this one. I am going to be up in the seatac area on the weekend of April 28th. I know this is a while off, but last time I didnt have anyone interested in me bringing any up until I had already been up there so this time I am starting early. Let me know, I will bump this thread every once in a while, if someone wants some and wants to save on shipping this is the way to do it.

I am going to be up in the SeaTac area over the Christmas weekend and figured I would see if anyone would be interested in some Akadama and save on the shipping. The price is $24 per 15L bag. Quantity discounts if someone wants to purchase a larger quantity. Let me know.

Hi nilocg,

I see you have an ad on AquaBid for Double Line Brand Akadama. I am the GSAS HAP chairperson and I might be interested in trying it. Do you have the 'hard grade'? If not, which type(s) do you have. I will send you a PM as well.

Thanks,
-Roy

PM replied to. It is my understanding that the Double red line version of Akadama is the hard grade version.

I will be up in the Auburn area from the 22nd to the 26th. The 23rd is probably the best day to meet up, but would probably be available most any day. let me know.

Hi Nicocg,

I'm still doing some research but should have a decision by the end of the week. Do you have the fine or medium size?

How many bags do you need? Maybe we can work something out.

How far north?

Bothell, I would get 4 bags because I am going to be setting up an extension to my shrimp room soon to hold more stock. If not it'll be fine, I might end up ordering 100 bags in the future.
