Petsmart is sold out. It's still on Amazon and Chewy for $39.99 a bucket for Reef Crystals.
Same here, its the usual 39.99 a bucket. Thats what I always pay anyway. IORC and IO are always usually 39.99 a bucket whether it be petsmart, petco, chewy or amazon.
Yeah sorry, didn't realize you were looking for RC instead of regular IO.Ok. You are talking about the purple bucket. The orange bucket is sold out.
I use regular Instant Ocean. I searched my email for prices I've paid in the past:
8/22 Chewy $37.99 50.3 lb (160 gal) = $0.76/lb
1/22 Petco $39.30 50.3 lb (160 gal) = $0.78/lb
3/19 Amazon $51.98 62 lb (200 gal) = $0.84/lb
1/16 Drs Foster and Smith $39.99 62 lb (200 gal) = $0.65/lb
As others have said, it pays to shop around . Also I wouldn't assume that the 200 gal box will be cheaper on a per lb basis.
Thanks for the info! I relied on the Chewy website which says 50.3 lb. Yup it say 48 lbs on the bucket.A bucket of IO has a (contents) net weight of 48 lbs. not 50.3.
IO buckets can be had for under 50 cents per lb during this sale, so much cheaper than you have paid in the past.
You can get (3) 48 lbs buckets = 144 lbs of salt for $68.38 plus tax. $0.475/lb ($22.79 each)
