This is great..thanks to others that also pointed this out.  You will pay a
lot more if you go through an aquaculture supply house.  Has anyone used the
cheap stuff to start biofilters?  What contaminants are present?  I generally
use reagent grade stuff because I have access, and because it's pure...but
I'd rather use "fertilizer" for certain applications.
