3M CQ Colorquartz dirt cheap and free shipping! - All Gone.

For those of you wanting 3M Colorquartz, I have found a place online that has 27 bags left of Grade T Black and is getting rid of it for $21.12 each. Free shipping! What a deal, eh? Since this grade is not part of their product line, you must call them to order. 800-535-3325 (press 1 to reach their order desk).

Grade S is a regular product they carry and always have it for $38 a bag with free shipping. This grade can be ordered online and all the various colors can be purchased. http://vbpstore.com/50-lb-bag-of-3m-color-quartz.html

I ordered 6 bags of the grade T and they shipped almost immediately via FedEx Ground.

yes definitely thanks. :-) I just started searching for this product locally and they wanted $40/bag everywhere. Half price and no shipping. Now I can afford some plants when I start the tank lol

I came across this, and this is a good deal for those without local suppliers. I can pick up T and S grade for $23/bag locally.

It's better than my "local". LOL 21.12 to the door and no gas. I was thrilled when I found it. I had planned to drive 3.5 hours one way and pay $30+ per bag.

yes I'm going to use it over mineralized soil. I've beeb told it holds a slope real well I'm not sure about the S grade though which is too bad because it comes in more colors. I like the brown ranges it comes in. Anyone know more about the S grade? I'm not finding too much out.

I believe I read that the S grade floated around too much to hold a slope well. I have no personal experience with it.

I believe there's only 4 bags left after my order. So those wanting in, jump on it!
