Yea thanks but can u tell me what the abbreviations are because I'm new and have no clue what they are lol

I live in Ontario, and it was actually in the bargain hunter. I actually had to take a pickup for an eight hour drive to pick it up. It was such a good deal there was no way I was passing it up. All the rock was premium. Funny thing, I went to the pet shop on the way home, sold 2 huge pieces of rock, and it paid for the trip and the setup that I went to get
