are paying a price for the value of the mark versus the dollar.  I 
also think they are making an unjustified profit.  But if people are 
willing to buy their products, more power to them.  I think Kent's, 
SeaChem or Schoeler (spelling?) supplements are just as good and at a 
fraction of the cost.  Your choice!
