Just like the title says. Does anyone know where I can purchase peat moss for aquarium use?

Look for Sphagnum Peat Moss at any Home Depot, Lowes & garden supply stores. It is chemical and fertilizer free but still double check.
Perhaps I should have mentioned this earlier but I did go to Home Depot and the only Sphagnum Peat Moss they carried was “Enriched With Miracle Grow”.

So after trekking around town and not finding the peat moss I was looking for, I decided to mail order it and save myself the aggravation of traffic and the headache associated with running around the city.

Thanks mrkookm but I just as well purchase it online if I can find a place that has it in stock.
I found mine at Walmart, and I have seen it at Lowes before.
Thanks guys but there are no Wal-Marts in NYC. I’ll go to Home Depot and check those huge pallets they had out back when I get an opportunity to go back.
I can send you a whole lot @ $10.00 shipped in the biggest flat rate box I have. It will hold about 1 cubic ft or half of what I have...definitely a couple of pounds worth and enouth to do a couple hundred gallons. Let me know if you interested.

Also, don't forget the Lowes in D'town Brooklyn.
@ mrkookm: LOL, I did overlook that. As a matter of fact, I'm not too far at all, I'm in Clinton Hills.

Yes I’m definitely interested, sounds great just pm me with payment instructions. :thumbsup: :proud:

Thanks mrkookm
lol...that close and forgot about them huh.....I know, most people do. Sent you a pm
mrkookm, Thanks again... pm sent.:thumbsup:
i got mine on ebay. be really sure not to get the kind with extra chemicals
