Greg Watson's Ferts?

I've been away from the forum for a while now and had my tanks down during a long and arduous move from way north, to way south. It's been a long road, but I'm finally getting to the point where I can put another planted tank together.

I've dug out all the equipment, dusted it off and even repaired my HQI ballast so getting very close now. I wanted to restock my ferts but I can't seem to find where on the internet Greg Watson's fert store is hiding. I'm not seeing anything on his site leading to it.

Am I missing something here? Did he close it down?

Help would be appreciated...

Here's two more places to get ferts.

Yeah, it's Tom Barr running it now, and I can say from experience, everything is just as good as it was when it was Greg Watson.

Nope,
Not sure where you got this.
That would be Alan, not me.
I do not do retail on line sales as a business.

Greg and I both operate the BarrReport as partners, but that's not really for profit either(like TPT site and most other forums, if we break even, we are happy). However, the BR is very different from the fertilizer business Greg sold to Alan some years back. Greg is too busy to do the business these days.

Regards,
Tom Barr

Dang, sorry, don't know where I got that then? At any rate whoever is doing it does a great job! And Tom, you're job on the barrReport is great as well!

Sorry bout the misunderstanding!

Greenleaf worked well.

Aquariumfertilizer.com was my first choice since it seemed to be an extension of Greg's ferts, but hopefully Greenleaf delivers just as well since the price was the same. Just thought I'd bring up the problem in case anyone who might know the new owner might bring it to his/her attention.

I purchased some non-fert stuff from Green Leaf and everything was excellent. I don't think you'll have a problem at all with them I used to order all of my stuff from Greg too before he bailed out. Prices seem to have risen across the board since.

I read that the price of KH2PO4 will be going up.

Thankfully it'll take me about 10 years to go through a pound of the stuff.

Well.. I would have had enough KNO3 to last a long long time, but thanks to youtube my son figured out how to make sugar rockets and smoke bombs using KNO3 and sugar and after we played in the yard for a couple days, it went quick. Luckily, KNO3 is pretty cheap so it's not like it broke the bank.

I do have to say that Greenleaf delivered FAST. I recieved the fert today and I must say that was quick service..
