Just did a search through their stocklist... they have some common ferts like potassium phosphate and potassium nitrate, but their prices are very high - the 2.5kg (5.5lbs. - i.e. a helluva lot) of MKP is listed at $66.52 - that's $12/lb. - aquariumfertilizer.com offers it for $5/lb, for comparison. Even with shipping from them it's still cheaper.
I've used most of the Seachem products before, the only ones worth the $ are Excel and maybe Comprehensive. I wouldn't bother with phosphorus (it's just a MKP solution), nitrate, potassium, iron, etc. Trace is useful, too, but most of what's in it can be obtained through cheaper powdered trace ferts.Has anyone order to D&T (http://www.dtpetsupplies.com/catalog/) before? They're Seachem Fert products are cheaper and they do price matching... I'm thinking of ordering 2L of each of Seachem's fert line Will use and do some experiment on my 37gal tank...
And attached is the most current stocklist from the aquabid guy I'm talking about...
Yep, plans are still the same! We'll all be wandering vaguely into my basement at around 2 (Also, my name is Amanda, but you can call me Asuka if you want - it's an old nickname from high school, as well as how I sign my artwork. It's pronounced a bit like "Oscar" but without the r...)A couple of things:
(1) Can I assume that nothing has changed as far as the plan for Saturday? Meeting at 2pm at Asukawashere's place? (I am still having a hard time associating real names to handles)
(2) Regarding ordering fish online. I have good experience ordering from Wetspotcx (aquabid handle - they are actually a fish store in Oregon if I remember correctly). They have very nice selection of nano fishes. Let me forward their stocklist to Mike and ask him to distribute to the rest of you.
As of today, it's 70%-30%... 70% I'll come on Saturday, just need to confirm with the in-laws if they really want to watch the kid while the wife and I are out having a good time LOL... Will update you on that by tomorrow afternoon...By the way John are you coming this saturday? I'm trying to get a head count for our underwater sting operation.
Hey Riverboa, the spreadsheet I attached on post #27 came from Grey... He's also from Wetspotcx...Regarding ordering fish online. I have good experience ordering from Wetspotcx
I know! I noticed this too and it made no sense to me either. But Big Als occasionally puts excel on sale and the 4 L goes down to the 40$ range.And here's my random question for the day: Big Al's sells 2L bottles of Excel for $26.99. It's 4L bottles, however, are $56.99. So why would anyone want to buy the 4L when you could just buy two 2L bottles for $53.98?
Just try not to burn down your house in the process :mrgreen: Would be a shame to lose all those gorgeous planted tanks...Just a few days until I fire it up for the first time!
