Hi Ryan,

We can special order that substrate, here is the price info

Meridian Gravel ups#000116340601 - 9 kg / 19.8 lbs
$12.95 each


It comes 2 bags to a case, since it would be a special order, we would need to sell you both bags or in qty of 2 per case if you wanted more, example, 2,4,6,8 etc. Or if you can find another person wanting 1 bag, we could split it.

It would probably take 2 weeks to get in.

thanks

What would the shipping be for 4 bags? Petsmart is offering free shipping on this item so I might go with them...(really don't want to) I guess if I can save money on shipping that would be great.

Hi Ryan,

We would have to charge actual freight, so if you want to email your zip code to [email protected] I can get you a price, but if PetSmart is offering free shipping, that's a good deal, they are probably just taking a loss on it, unless there retail price is much higher then what we quoted.

thanks

It is more expensive but I called them last night and asked if they priced matched other online stores and they said they would. I found it at some store i've never heard of for 12.99. But the bad thing about getting it from petsmart is, its back orded and may take 30 days to get to me. :mad: Well the sooner I get my sand the closer I get my tank setup. Also I think its a overlooked mistake on petsmarts website all the other sand is charging freight fees.

thanks,

Ryan

Hopefully they'll get it sooner. I've seen them do free shipping on items like that before. I think they don't realize it or they take losses to get business. I know they did it with IO salt buckets one time, they had to loose 10-15 bucks an order. There way of getting market share probably.

I remember another pet store did that couple of years ago, didn't work for them, but PetSmart is pretty strong.

thanks
