Default Soilmaster and Sand

As of right now we have sources for both the Pro's Choice Soilmaster Select and 3M's Color Quartz black sand! Rob and I would like to place orders for both of these tomorrow morning (Tuesday).

400 lbs of sand works out to be about 55 cents per pound with shipping. Shipping is a flat $60 fee for the state of Ohio, up to 2200lbs. $60 is close to the cost of gas for me driving up there and back in my truck, assuming I don't get lost The price per pound will drop a bit if we order more but this is only available in 50lb bags.

The Pro's Choice is about $11 for 50lbs and I will go pick that up since it is fairly close. This too is available only in 50lb bags.

Matt - $115.50
Soilmaster - 150lbs ($33)
Sand - 150lbs ($82.50

Rob - $77
Soilmaster - 100lbs ($22)
Sand - 100lbs ($55)

Damon - $38.50
Soilmaster - 50lbs ($11)
Sand - 50lbs ($27.50)

Sean - $77
Soilmaster - 100lbs ($22)
Sand - 100lbs ($55)

Russ - $66
Soilmaster - 50lbs ($11)
Sand - 100lbs ($55)

Erik
Soilmaster -
Sand -

Post a response and I can edit the quantity of your post into this reply so we only have to look at one post when placing the order.

I know this sounds ridiculously small, but I would like about 5 pounds each for a nano experiment and the paludarium I am planning. If you guys wouldn't mind gleaning from (or padding) your orders to give me a bit, I don't mind pitching in my $0.55/lb. The nano has a "foot" print of less than 5" X7". I have plenty of soil and other gravel to put with the Soilmaster for the paludarium land-side, but would like to try a bit for the small area of water. The 5 lbs may even be a gross overestimate, but what I don't use for these two projects, I have something else brewing...

Has anyone found anyone using Soilmaster in their tanks? I know we were originally looking at Turface. Just curious as to the similarities.

Check out this thread: http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ad.php?t=10128

According to my research and post #8, Turface and Pro's Choice are the same thing.

I ordered a bit more than I need, at least for now, so I can share a bit of mine sand and Soilmaster with you Dineen.

If there is anyone else who needs a small quantity of either of these, let me know. I should be able to increase my order by 50lbs of each for those who may only want 5-10 lbs of it for smaller tanks. I can bring the extras to the meeting along with everything else

Tom had said that 50lbs of Turface mixed with 50lbs of sand would be more than enough for a 75g...

Matt, I would like the same as Rob. I know i am only doing a 75 gallon(whenever i find one) but I am tempted to put this in my other thanks as well. Its cheap enough to get now i can leave it in the garage till later.

I won't be able to order at this time. Oceanic taking forever with their price changes and until they get the materials costs worked out, all their custom work is on hold. However, the square inches for a 48x18 are the same as the 36x24 so I know I'll need 50lbs of each or 100lbs of the soilmaster.

I tried to order 200lbs of the Soilmaster last Thursday from Jeremy a E.E. Johnson and was told Jeremy's supplier will not deliver less than 600lbs to him. I don't know if there will be enough interest in more of the Soilmaster when your tank is ready. The sand is prety cost prohibitive to order also since shipping is a flat $60 for up to 2200lbs!

Sean may have more info on the shipping since he bought a bag or two from them before.

Shipping on 50lbs was 40 dollars. That may have gone up due to gas prices.
