Apparently, Tropica saw fit to discontinue Tropica Master Grow in favor of a new line called Aquacare as a marketing strategy, which includes a hefty price increase. Here is a copy of the email I sent to their new investor and copied their new director, feel free to plagiarize.
I would like to congratulate you in your recent investment in Tropica. Although their plants are not available in the U.S., their products are. I had been a faithful purchaser and user of Tropica Master Grow; it carries a lot of influence in the hobby.
It deserves mention that your recent marketing philosophy to discontinue Tropica Master Grow is unfortunate. I see no remarkable change in the product to warrant the significant price increase so my business will now go to your competitor, Seachem. It would behoove you to monitor the forums associated with planted tanks to witness the displeasure the hobby places in your new found marketing philosophy. I wish you further success and hope your significant investment pays off.
By the way, I currently have 12 planted tanks and am adding 6 more soon, I did use a significant quantity of Tropica Master Grow.
Mr. Lars, I ask you to reconsider and continue marketing Tropica Master Grow as before. I await a response and will forward it to other hobbyists.
