I have a 50# bag (unopened) of SS charcoal that I want to go to good use. If anyone is in the Whittier area $20 takes it away. ( figured $17 plus the gallon of gas it cost me to pick it up) If you have plants or critters (shrimp /dwarf crays) to trade let me know. Thanks,
Dave

Japple,
Just an FYI the post you responded to is from September. But Dave may still have it as I don't remember anyone taking him up on it.

Are you in SoCal?

It would be great

Yes, I am in SoCal (Seal Beach). And I can't seem to find SS Charcoal, or any other for that matter, anywhere. It really want to give this substrate a try. Should be interesting for the students too. =)

Has anyone been succesful in finding a local supply of it?

I've got a local supply down here in San Diego county (Near Oceanside). At least, they carry "red" all the time and seem willing to order in charcoal.

If you just need the red variety there are Lesco locations in Anaheim and Upland.

Ignore Lesco. Their prices are high and they don't always want to work with you. I contacted OilDri directly and was told the best source for me locally is Target Specialty Products. Here's their web site: Target Specialty Products

They've got an office in Santa Fe Springs just off I-5.

Man this sucks, I was about to make a new planted tank too but the Anaheim store doesn't carry the SS Charcoal and I haven't got my license yet. Perhaps I should wait a few more months and then drive around OC to find the Soilmaster. Cooper, if you happen to go to Tong's Tropical Fish and Pets in FV (I live about a mile from there) I could pay you for the bag and the gas money if you're willing to go that far :D

Carl was reffering to a group buy we tried to do before the last meeting. I believe I was the only one interested so I just went and bought two bags of the red stuff at target specialty it was only about $14 dollars for a bag. I didnt bother with trying to get the charcoal. They didnt have it and I didnt really want to special order or anything like that. Shipping would have killed me. Good luck on your mission. The target specialty in Santa Fe springs is where I went. Nice people. Even wheeled the bags to my car for me. Kind of industrial will call but easy to deal with.
