Gravel Question.

I was thinking of not buying the Eco Complete. Thats quite a bit of money (for the gravel, and shipping) for some gravel.

Can I just get some at WalMart or the LFS or something?

^^^Where in KY? I lived in Huntington WV for 12 years, so that's close to your neck o' the woods.

You can use pea sized gravel...Estes makes a decent gravel. You can add a layer of peat and some larite (sp) to it. All of these should be readily available at your LFS.

Actually before I saw the thing about Estes I went out and bought some black gravel from Estes.

That, And a Python from Walmart (JChillin though they wouldnt have one).

Manoosie, I already told you yesterday that I had shipped it yesterday. You should get it tomorrow.
