Hi all,

I need to order some Instant Ocean salt for the aquarium system at my university. I am looking at getting 2 or 3 160 gallon buckets of salt. Where can I find the best deal? If I buy more can I save money on shipping? I am located in Normal, IL (61761) is that helps any.

Thanks,
Kevin

I don't know if this is the cheapest (per bucket) but you can't beat the shipping price!

160 gallon bucket @ 31.99 x 3 = $95.97 + standard ship (within 7 business days) $10.99

total = $106.96

You can try your local PetsMart. Print off the price from there website and they will price match. I think it is 31.99 for the bucket.

Yes, this is hands down the best deal I've come across. Just don't tell too many people because I don't want good old Petsmart to decide to nolonger match the online price of salt. :)
