    If you go through a lot of prime, have you ever thought about Safe? It's the powdered, more concentraded form of Prime. 1/8th teaspoon treats 25 gallons. $8 gets you enough to treat 50,000 gallons of water.

    Nice, I may start doing a yearly or twice yearly order from ken's to cut down on my week-to-week spending at the LFS. That way I can keep tabs on how much I actually spend.

    Do you order any filter media from him?

    Not to thread highjack here but I order just about all of my fish stuff from kens. The food they make is awesome! Love that place <3

    Between the 55g at work and my tanks at home in a years time I use lots of prime. Haven't heard of safe :;dk

    I have ordered just about everything at one time or another :)

    Not a hijack :) I have been pleased with everything I've gotten from him too :)

    I love Safe! it's cheaper and just as affective! 1 bottle lasts me about a year with 5 tanks.   It does have a bit of a concentrated smell to it ;D

    I have purchased from Ken for years and have never had any issues.
  11. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    Who have you not bought from Dino? I think you've hit the fish scene pretty hard lol
  12. AlyeskaGirlFishlore VIPMember

    Free shipping is great but doesn't apply to where I live. That sucks.

    While I will not list them here, there are several people I WILL NOT buy from.

    After being in the hobby 33 years next month, and having spent more money than I care to think about on it, yeah I guess you could say I've hit it pretty hard.
  14. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    I thought it was closer to 300 years? So what should I be avoiding? I open to cautionary PM's lol

    Haha, I've been favoring amazon a bit too much lately. Time to start giving the little guys business again.

    Good morning,

    I also use Ken's for foods and supplies. The activated carbon is the cheapest that I have found to date. Anywhere from $5 to $8 cheaper buying the largest size. Super fast service compared to many other places.

    Hmmm I am going to have to check out this Kens site you guys speak of. I try to support local when I can but I am also about saving money too. Also I tend to stay busy so I cant always make it to the LFS. I have spent a ton with Amazon and I am pretty pleased with them however you have to know what your looking for to find it. I am going to go scoot around Kens site and see whats going on over there.
