Anyone with experience with this product

I am in the planning stages of my 120 and have begun the confusing process of choosing a substrate. There seem to be many more choices than there were 5 years ago. Has anyone here used this product before?

I am also considering SMS. However, it seems to be rather difficult to find.

I hear that the aquariumplants.com substrate is basically repackaged SMS.

That's my understanding as well. Both look pretty close to each other...

Ouch. Leave the newbie alone.


It's probably a cheaper option to source Soilmaster Select from OliDry or Lesco.

I wasn't trying to be mean at all, I just find it redundant to post the same question if it has been answered literally a few lines before. Sorry :/

A lot of people think that it is SMS. They wanted $25 for shipping.
why pay that much when you can get the same thing for $13

If you can get SMS/Turface....where you live. Unfortunately, that is not a reality for everyone.
