So online that exact brand can be shipped to your door for less than $40/bag? Hrm. Well, I thought I was well versed with shipping charges per weight, but maybe I'm missing something. I was going to buy 50# of dow flake for my reef tank from Buckeye Field Supply and they wanted a lot more to ship the product than it was worth. I could drive there and buy it cheaper.
Anywho, I understand why you can get it online cheaper, those places don't have the same business operation as a LFS. You can get everything cheaper online, fish related or not. I brought up shipping because some people don't take that into account. Maybe that's the reef side of the aquarium hobby.
