Yup! $5.00 for basicly a cup of substrate... Hence why I wanna find it some other place lol
Fluval Stratium looks like the best bet, this is a tester tank to see how well this stuff would work in a 40b tank...

That substrate looks like biological filter media. Maybe that's why it's so expensive and only sold in small quantities.

Any aquatic retailer would have some version of it. Eheim makes ceramic balls similar to those but are a lighter color. You could also check hydroponic stores.
