I believe it's $50 or $60 for the 9L bag. Kalihi Pets also carries some ADA AS. Ordering online is worth it only if you order several bags since shipping is killer to Hawaii.

yes, b15ser is right. tried ordering eco-complete online at drsfostersmith but shipping was $30! might as well get aquasoil at aquascapes. don't know anywhere that would ship cheaper since it's a heavy bag of dirt we're talking about here lol

Yeah Dr. Fosters is a rip off for people in Hawaii. I think they ship each thing on its own private plane or something lol. Yeah aquascapes $50 a bag. you could check with adana-usa but, I think shipping may be expensive.

I remember someone trying to argue with me about how aquascapes is cheaper than adgshop(including shipping) when the fact of the matter is, they are not. However, I don't mind spending a few dollars more to support Jojo's store. For anything else, petsolutions or kensfish.

I agree.

I put one 9L bag of ADA Aquasoil Amazonia II into the shopping cart at both adgshop and adana-usa just to see. Both places sell the bag for $28. Shipping for the one bag was $77.02 for UPS 2nd Day, $129.45 for UPS Next Day, and adana-usa had UPS Ground option for $65.93. Ouch!
