no (though I haven't ordered yet), but i do check the website daily (and email jeff weekly - sorry jeff) regarding the status (i'll order once it's in stock - i'd like some driftwood too and want it all shipped at the same time). On monday Jeff said there was still no update, and the website hasn't updated the situation till the 4th. I'm almost ready to add my substrate and at this rate it doesn't look like it's going to be aquasoil... but hell - i mean, how much longer could it be? good luck with your order, by the way.

I think he has Amazonia 1 in, which I personally recommend over AS II. He may not though, try e-mailing him.

I had a somewhat isolated, bad experience with AS II. A couple other people on the forums had the same trouble. For us, it broke down under water, and turned into mud. Keep in mind it was isolated, and Jeff states that all the AS II he has now is free of the defect.

Ohh....that's not good. ^^

I guess its just personal preference. I prefer AS II to AS I. AS II didn't cloud my water nearly as bad and I didn't have an ammonia reading for near as long....but I've actually heard the opposite from people (cloudiness and high ammonia with AS II vs AS I).
