WooHOO! we are back in business on the black sand. The guy that I said would cheat his mom, actually will get it to us for 14.00 a bag, delivered. That tells me that that stuff is not very expensive to retailers. Anyway, he is supposed to order 17 bags of it tomorrow for us.

As a comparison, Fosters & Smith would have been 18.plus per bag...not the worst price seen...but higher than I wanted to pay.

Now if the sump parts would just get here.

Ive found that if you research, even bad LFSes can do good on some dry goods.
