It's an un-open bag (30lb). I originally got 2 bags to do my 90 gallon tank. I don't think 30lbs is enough for a 48"x15" tank.

I got it from 77hydro and got it shipped. http://www.77hydro.com/

They mentioned spreading dolomite and some other stuff on the glass bottom so that the pH stays buffered under the dirt. I plan to do that eventually, but the first thing I'm going to do with the black diamond is do an anubias only tank with breeding bristlenose plecos.
i thought about going the mineralized route, but it's too cold (for me) to work outside and dry the soil and i sure as heck wasn't doing it indoors. not for enough soil to fill this tank. satan would definitely throw me out on my butt then. at least i would have the tank to live in......lol

I was hoping we could get at least 10 people on the list, but I suppose 7 will have to do. I haven't looked up each zipcode yet, but I'll do it by the end of the night.

Default Swap meet

Here we go guys. Each dot is a person...the center dot with the rings around it looks like a good spot to meet. Luckily for that person they won't have to go far haha. There's three of you up in the top right too, so I imagine you can have your own swap meet if you really wanted.

Or Monster Pets parking lot on Snyder Ave. Either way, 19107 is good for me. I work in 19106 and are in 19148 a lot.
