Default Good place to get dry fertz in NoCo

Getting down to plant time, need to be getting my EI ferts and wondered if there was some place in Fort Collins area to get them before I order some.

It's better if you get them from someone here on TPT. I bet you will get cheaper price.

I usually order mine from Green Leaf Aquariums. Its not too expensive either. I get about 4 lbs of all my macros at a time, and 1-2 lbs of my csm+b that way it can be a good year before I have to order again. (my 40b uses a TON of fertz for its very heavily planted state)

I ended up ordering the EI pack from them just to get started.

I tend to bounce between three different online stores for my dry ferts....

Green Leaf Aquariums

Aquariumfertilizer.com

BobsTropicalPlants.com

I go with who ever has the cheapest price at the time, but only go BobsTropicalPlants.com for my Iron chelate 13% EDTA.

Good info! Setup the tank tonight and the eheim canister is leaking. Don't know if I should spend the $20+ on an o-ring or just try one of the sunsun filters off amazon for $56.

I have the Aquatop (cf-400) branded version of the sun sun. Its a GREAT filter, whisper quiet. And easy to maintain (if you can lift it) This sucker is about the size of a small office trash can lol!
