Since there was some interest at last night's GCAS meeting in some dry fertilizers and Tom had mentioned the Turface 'Black' I gave the GCAS folks some links to our group purchase threads. Hopefully some of them will see the post and go in on the order with us.

While posting there, I remembered Tom talking about getting Amano shrimp in bulk. Is anyone interested in getting Amano Shrimp fairly cheap? I would love to have some in my 55g tanks. I think their color would go well with my "Green " 55g tank in the basement...

Anyways, here is the link to the thread on the GCAS site: http://www.gcas.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=14782#14782

You can reply here or on the other site, pm me or e-mail me: [email protected]al.net

I would also be good for 50 lbs (more if i get a 75 gallon) of turface. I have the regular turface in my tank mixed with black sand. It doesnt look the best(brown and black) but it does a great job.

I have no problem picking up the Turface for any of you who are in Cincinnati. I am now off Tues-Thurs so time won't be a problem. Just let me know as I need to get 200 lbs myself. We can either set up a meeting time in Cincinnati or arrange for pickup at the next meeting depending on your need.

Since I have a truck, I can help with delivery too, especially if we need to get a lot of it! We don't want Damon's car to look like a low rider in the back only :)

Can I get 50lbs of Black Sand from the same place too? I think Tom Barr recommended I mix 50lbs of Black Turface and 50lbs of Black Sand together for my 75 gallon. Let me know.

I got my black sand from a place in cleavland. If there is enought interest I could go up and get some more. Slit the cost of gas instead of shipping. Shipping was 40 dollars, the sand was 25(ish). Looks great though.

I haven't spoken to my contact about black sand. To be honest, it never crossed my mind. Will look into it tomorrow.

I don't know what's going on with the turface since I couldn't make the meeting on Sunday, but I'm good for about four dozen shrimp depending on price.

Just to update everyone, Foster's and Smith is the only one to respond to my e-mail about the shrimp. They WILL NOT offer bulk pricing on their Shrimp so $2.99 each is the best they would be willing to do.

I am waiting on AZGardens and somewhere else (can't remember rihgt now) to reply about the shrimp. If those two fail, I will try and contact SFBAAPS and see where they get theirs.

I will talk to one of the LFS guys here who said he can order "anything I want" about some bulk pricing either today or tomorrow! Still trying to get over this damn cold...
