Aquarium Supplies

Do you guys get your supplies (chemicals) online? If so where. Where have you had the best experience and who has the lowest prices and shipping costs.

I always use aquacave.com. They have cheap shipping and are usually quick. They are also a site sponsor. I have also used dr fosters and smith. They have good prices and cheap shipping. They take forever though. Marinedepot.com is also good. I have used them too. They are in between the two, IMO.

Drs. Foster and Smith or That Pet Place or Marine Depot or Big Al's (pretty much in that order) with a few others dependig on what I'm looking for.

The Drs. usually have the best price but they don't price match, shipping from them is quite fast now that they use FedEx ground (3 day). That Pet Place will price match and is one day shipping to me (UPS).

I don't use chemicals. For Purigen I search for the lowest price. Carbon, GFO.. Bulkreefsupply. Test kits/refills = LFS so I can see the expiration date

Yes just looking to save some money. prices on-line are about 40% cheaper. You just must order enough to get free shiping.

Good call on the test kits. I didn't even think about that.

Fair enough. There isn't as much of a market for that stuff here though.

There isn't much of a market???? So no one suplements calicum, uses salt, carbon, GFO, filter bags, etc. That seems alittle strange to me
