Other than local shops that get stock in from these two places anyways, the best (and only) online vendors are: www.adgshop.com and www.adana-usa.com.

Do they have a listing of local shops that they distribute to? I'd love to find a dealer nearby so I don't have to pay $20 to ship dirt.

Not that I know of. Maybe you could call and ask?

Aqua Forest charges $28 a 9l bag if you order online or $39 a 9l bag if you buy it in the store. Online price is lower to compensate for shipping, there is no bargain price either way. Last time I ordered from Aqua Forest I got three 9l bags for $84 + $15.74 for ground shipping. That comes out to $33.24 a bag, cheaper than if I had driven into SF to pick it up. Since I live in CA I also had to pay tax, not sure if they charge sales tax on out of state orders. When I checked the ADG site the online price for the aqua soil was also $28 but the shipping charge was much higher.

$44.53 per bag if delivered to Connecticut. It sucks when ALL the good stuff is 3,000 miles away.

FWIW... if I buy a 9L bag at Aqua Forest the cost is $42.31 including the sales tax.

That's what I did, I think it was $118 for 3 9l bags delivered. Cheap it ain't... I could have picked a cheaper & less addictive hobby like smoking crack.

Rarely have I seen it in your average LFS. You can call around, but most likely you'll be ordering it from AF or ADG.

If you're in a local club, try to put together a group order. Jeff at ADG will ship freight, which if you can put together a whole pallet is pretty cheap per item(well, not pretty cheap, but much less expensive)....and if you are really nice, you might be able to work out a quantity/club discount.

If you check around, I bet you can find people in your area that would like to order some ADA products too.

Connecticut has no active clubs (in my area or even within 45min) unfortunately =(

How many bags are needed for a 40 Breeder (36"x18")? Would 4 be enough?

3 bags will be plenty I bought 3 bags for two tanks 24"x16" and i have some left over. The bags are bigger than other substrate bags. It comes dry so you get more substrate
