is AS available locally in NJ?

I live in Southern New Jersey. Just picked up a 75g standard for free.

I have eco in my 10g currently and i am not all that pleased with it. I have aleco closeby which i may be able to source some soilmaster select.

Ideally though, i'd like to use ADA AS. I do not however wish to spend 80dollars or more to ship it if i buy it online from ADG. Nothing personal, but if i can get soilmaster select for 15bucks a bag and i'd need what? 2 bags...spending 2-3 times that just for shipping seems like a waste.

Additionally, i cant seem to find the coverage per bag of ADA AS. Am i looking at 4,6,or 8 bags of AS for a 75g(assuming i am buying the normal type 9L bags)?

I'm in southern NJ too. I would love to find A.S. here also. Seems like California gets all the good supply shops. I guess being closer to Japan helps keep the overall price down since the shipping from Japan to Cali is alot shorter. We on the East Coast have to pick up a hefty price tag to get the stuff over here. If you haven't joined New Jersey Aquatic Gardener's Club go there and join quickly. We are putting together a group order from ADA but the cutoff is Oct. 31. You might be able to save yourself enough to make the Aquasoil affordable.

Somewhere on ADG's website there's a calculator to tell you how much AS you'd need. I found it once, but it took a bit of looking. I'm thinking you'd probably need 6 x 9L, but check around there.

On the message board scroll down to where it says group orders. It's in that sub-forum. Here's a link. Not sure if it will work for you.

ADA Group Order
