Where to get Aquasoil?

Hey,

I know this is prolly a over asked question. I did a quick search and couldnt find a source. I am in Michigan, I am looking for a source for the ADA Aquasoil. I want to give it a try in my 150 gallon tank. I know the price will be crazy....but considering the cost of the rest of the tank...I might as well go with the Aquasoil. Thanks for the help.

$36 for a 9 liter bag +shipping. I recommend Aqua Soil "Amazonia".

4 bags gave me a perfect amount in a 75 gallon, so I'm guessing you would need 7 or 8.

Are you sure it's $36.00; he gave me a quote of $28?

I am offering it for $26 on the new site-- which is not up yet, but if interested, just let me know and I'll give anyone here at The Planted Tank an additional 10% off ($26 - 10%).

Jeff,

Your current site is showing Amozonia Aqua Soil (Normal) as being out of stock in both 3 and 9 liter sizes. Is that correct? If so, when do you expect to have more available?

Thanks.

~Brian

P.S. - Normally, I would have contacted you through your site, but I thought this would be of interest to this forum.

No- I appreciate you posting that question here on the forum!
I will have a huge order of ADA product in right at the end of the month-- so in about 2 weeks. I will be ready and anxious to start shipping right away, and you place an order now, or wait a week or so until the new site is up-- which will be a huge improvement over what we have now.
I want to incorporate a feature to make it easy for Planted Tank members to get a break on product or shipping-- something to express our appreciation for the forums and all they do to help the hobby.

Regarding average shipping cost: with UPS it has been in the $20 range or so, but the new site will have all available shipping options so you can see well ahead of time (you won't even have to create an account to get a shipping quote/compare rates, etc.) what shipping will run you. Ask anyone who has called me and asked questions/talked to me personally about ADA-- I am almost always willing to work with people to get them the products they want so if there's something I do to get it to you at a better price, I want to do it.
I know the shipping cost can be a real obstacle on the substrate, so I am trying to find ways to make it more affordable/accessible to more people. I will already on the new site be doing away with the "$5 handling" charge that was being added before.
