It's been over 2 years since I ordered from AlgaeBarn and I had honestly forgotten why I didn't order again. Personally I am not too ecstatic about the 5280 pods. I received the combo of 5280 and OceanMagik today and let's just say, may 2 bags looked nothing like this picture below: In this picture above you can plainly see the pods. I think in my bag I could see a few brown spots floating around. They did arrive alive (at least the few that you could see) and the packaging too me was more exciting that the actual 5280 pods. Shipping took forever to receive and on the site the reason was because of high demand and that they wanted to ensure a quality product. Right now I cannot say that what I received was a quality product. The Ocean Magik is fine, but man the 5280 pods was like looking through clear water. I put the "water" in a 5 gallon tank to see if I can at least salvage something from it, but not impressed to say the least. I have ordered from another source a few weeks ago and I could definitely see the pods so I wanted to see what the AlgaeBarn hype was all about. Guess I be using my other source because spending $100 and you cannot see them like you can in the image above just isn't right (almost like selling snake oil in a bag). I am sure others have had better experiences, but this wasn't what I was expecting.
