Hi,

I am trying to sell 10 3/4 oz of Plantex CSM+B which I purchased from Aquariumfertilizer.com a few months back I am asking $8 with the shipping included. I am from the Milwaukee,WI area so a hand deliver is not out of the question.
any interest [email protected]

What is PPS-Pro?
I have 2 of the 36" dual hagen T5HO GLO on the top of my 46gal bow and 2 bubbles per sec of co2 into a co2 reactor similar to the one REX has on his webb site. My water is city from lake michigan at approx GH 300ppm, KH 170ppm and ph about 7.2, all my plants are growing real well.

lol... what part u talkin bout "too much work" bud?? DW cost bout $0.99 @ walmart for a gallon, here in TX. and u used 4dkh solution for the drop checker right? it's pretty accurate, and everyone uses it. I've seen my fish gasping for air, when yellow-green, and they do great (normal) when light green to green. so it's pretty good to get an estimate...
