Saw if on amazon.com on sale for 53 bucks and I think 5 dollars for shipping so it's about the same. That's a good deal they are usually a lot more when I see them.

I paid like 54-56 dollars but I went with foster and smith.

I love those stones and the fish do too!!! Just one thing the small ones are pretty much useless but I used them by turning them around so you don't see the hole and using them to brave other stones. Once they fill with water there very sturdy.

Imo get one 15pack and one 10 pack (just medium and large). The small ones are to small to do much good. That's just imo tho.

Lol we had the same thought at the same time. I totally agree. I figured maybe fry will use them or something.

coooool beans .. thanks!! i'll def look into the 10packs too when i get home.. i have a couple small fish still so i'm sure what few i get in the 15pack could still be used for a little while

& i think foster & smith is the winner

thanks again guys!!

I'm also in CT and got my stones from Kens. He has the best price and customer service on the planet.
