Does anyone know where the cheapest place to get B-Ionic Calcium Buffer 2-part. I would like to give the larger sizes either 2,8 or 10gal.

thanks
Michael

I have gone to there shop on Varick St (Brooklyn). Its easy to get there via public trans. Dont know how much of a better deal you'll get but Im sure it would beat shipping. I know that they like for you to call in advance if you do plan to go.

I found their web site and it's alot cheaper than other places. I didn't think that you can go and pick it up at their place. They're not open until Tuesday, I call then and find out.

thanks

There was a place, North East Marine Specailties, in Syracuse NY that had free ground shipping and great prices on B-Ionic. But I just tried their web site and it doesn't seem to work. www.nemarinespecialties.com Anyone know if they are still around?

I was in ESVs neighborhood working with a client when I stoped by.I noticed that a local store sold the two part 32oz. cheaper. I told them and they gave it to me at the better price. I would still call them before I go and see if they work with you on the price.

You could try Northern Aquariums in Queens, or Fish Town.

Mike,

One of the online vendors sells it for 24.99 for the 64 oz concentrate containers - think it was marine depot but I could be wrong - I bought it about 3 months ago - so much for the short term memory recall.
