Any Thoughts on This

Newbie setting up first low tech tank on a budget.

It seems pretty cost effective. Especially with free shipping but I'm new to all this.

Free shipping makes it an ok choice, other than that you can get probably get Turface, Flourite, or Eco-Complete locally for a bit cheaper.

Turface is from Lesco/John Deere so you'd have to call around to your local dealers it looks about the same and there's some debate about whether aquariumplants has a deal to repackage something similar to Lesco's older product SoilMaster Select through Oil-Dri who physically makes it along with Oil-Dri and Kitty Litter products. I would suspect that's the case and if that's true then it's a decent product.
