It's a high CEC material. I think it's volcanic rock.

Funny stuff, I used to go to that Petco when I went to college out there. Anyways, I would go buy some bags but I don't want to drive out all the way to Stony Brook.

They had some other stuff I think floravital or something like that. the manager was like thank god you are taken it. They have a great selection of plants they have this plant only tankhigh flow of water. The plants look in good shape the plants they have in the fished tanks where in piss poor shape black algae growing on them. If any one wants a Bambo shrimp they have 6 of them in one tank. The guy who work there fed them froozen brine shrimp I said "you know they are filter feeders right?"

Im thinking of picking up the 29 gal set up they have for $69 no stand.

I talk to them often, they're selection isn't that great. Their plants are ok but its common stuff....all the tags fell off so you cant really tell the species they have. I would honestly take an extra minute and go to petsmart by costco. They even have bagged DHG now. Looks good too, have some in my tanks and they're doing great. Great size for $7.

I actually prefer the petsmart at this point.

I got 4 CO2 yeast hagen systems from there for $3 a piece when they had them for clearance.

Trust me there's nothing to be jelly about. I would trade this sale for the selection you find in queens any day.

For LI, there's pretty much aqua hut in coram and Franks. That's about it. Not even a good place to buy aquatic moss here......

I picking up the 29gal tank they have on sale the hole setup NO stand $69.95.

But the whole store was off lone so they couldn't process the sale.

It seem the corporate main frame cashed and took out the intere chain of stores nation wide. That what they said.
