I found that the Petco's in my area were clearing out Red Sea 41lb boxes that mix 150G for a whopping $12.50 w/tax!

I bought 3 boxes. They were teh only ones left in the metro area.

I checked out Petsmart on line. They have good prices but the shipping is almost as much as the salt. 50gal bag - 9.99 +8.95 ship. 200 gal bucket - 34.99 + 19.95 ship. The 50 gal bag would be a little cheaper than my lfs but I can buy the 200g bucket for less.

Good stuff.

I have lost all of my faith in Big Al's. I went there and they had great selection, but luckily for me I forgot my moola when I was going to buy some stuff so I went home and called aroud and found everything for less at other places.
Petsmart and Petcetera, though the people that work there are idiots, they do have good prices on the basics.

Premiumaquatics.com has 200Gal Buckets of Oceanic Salts for 39.95, BUUuuuuttttt, they wanted to charge me over $60 for shipping

So i got 2x200Gal buckets of Oceanac SeaSalts for 113.97 including the shipping.
Thats 56.98 per bucket...not great, but not bad either. Especially now when i see Petsmart selling the 160Gal Buckets of IO for $60 bucks in their stores.
