Hi all, I felt like posting this because I wanted to help everyone save a buck or two.... We all know that a lot of times, aquarium companies will take a product, slap a " specially made for aquarium use" tag on it, and jack up the cost <----when in actuality, you can get the same thing for much cheaper elsewhere.


Pool Supply Stores sell Diatomaceous Earth for a LOT cheaper than aquarium stores. They also sell Pool Filter Sand that you can use for your top substrate for considerably cheaper than petshops.

Home Depot is the place to go to get Jobe's Sticks for Lush Ferns and Palms.... At 1.50 dollar a pack, you can't go wrong! You can also get your Sphagnum Peat Moss here, instead of buying it at Petsmart for a ridiculously high amount.

There's plenty more examples of these out there and so my dream is let's all share them![/b]
