John, good deal. Need the $$?

For everyone else...there's also a bag of Soilmaster Select Charcoal colored available in Whittier (90606) for a decent price.

Haha.. not at all Mike, just leftovers. Cassie, I have 9liters of unopened AS and around 2liters of PS, then an unknown amount of used AS.

the AS would be for my 10g shrimp tank that currently has sand in it. How would the transition from sand to AS go over, and how would that affect my shrimp, which include cherries from just hatched to adults?

You'll only need half of the 9liters for a 10g, as for the shrimps, I would leave them in a bucket of the tank water with the filter media in it with them and acclimate them again after filling the tank with AS. Be ready to witness a few deaths though. Since the AS does change the water params dramatically the first few weeks.

how does it change them? does it effect the pH, hardness, or what? I think I need to wait a bit for my cherry population to grow before switching. although I was thinking about making it an all moss tank, in which case the substrate is irrelevant...

It lowers the PH and hardness. The water becomes suitable for a lot of fish that require a more acidic ph and lower hardness. You can probaly find a lot of information if you used the search on aquasoil.
