I've only ever gotten it from reefcleaners, sorry so I have no point of reference. LOL

I do know they will custom box you up the perfect size pieces though, just tell them what you want and they come through. also shipping is included.

if you have one already sure, it will take a few weeks for it to break in properly anyway. It won't affect a cycle.
