    It is seasonal with some areas But almost any horticulture /flower or gardening shop would have it I'm sure may cost a tad more ? maybe Wal Mart or K mart would even have it ?

    tang: you mentioned purity based off of manufacturer. which is exactly my point. do you know the purity level of mrs. wages vs (esv or seachem or little fishies or others). im curious to know your results. maybe mrs. wages has less concentrated CaHO2 by volume than others.

    you get what you pay for, or so im told.
