Looking for 25mm Siporax

Made a little media basket for siporax, only to have the 15mm ones I have fall through the holes. Looking for 25mm siporax, but hard to find. If anyone has 1 or 2L to sell please let me know

I bought mine from England on Ebay. there's a couple guys that sell Siporax for cheap. It's the real deal Siporax but they do not ship it the 1/2Liter box. They will ship you a giant bag full.

shipping takes awhile but much cheaper compared to buying boxes here in the States

Thanks for the link monkie. Yeah I literally just need to fill a 3" x 3" X 10" egg crate media basket going in the back of an AIO chamber of a Fusion Nuvo 20gal, and maybe a little for the bottom chamber, so looking to pick up just a handful from a local reefer. Don't know what I would do with all that siporax!

Schnitzel if you got some a little bit to sell let me know

Keep an eye on your Silicate levels, I used a bunch of Siporax in my 400 and after a few years my Silicates went up very high and my corals were acting funny. Removed it all and it was gone. I did run 120 liters in a special sump however so a few liters will probably be fine. I replaced mine with Brightwell Bricks and they take up way less room in my sump.

Thanks for the heads up pciscott. Yeah I will literally be using only 3/4L, so hopefully I won't run into a silicate issue. Your tank is a big boy. 400g beast!
