Yes, I'm still here ;-) That ad was an "accident" and slipped out the 
door a little ahead of schedule. There is a Flourite Black, it is not 
for sale yet anywhere. It should be available "soon" (probably a 
month, but can't guarantee that), we are simply working on some 
supply issues to ensure that we will have enough of the material at 
introduction that we can meet the expected high demand. Since there 
does seem to be strong interest on the list, I will make a brief 
announcement on the list when it ships... if anyone objects to this 
just let me know now and I will refrain from making such an

It's currently undergoing testing, so assuming all goes well it 
should be ready to ship in 2-3 months.

That was a product we unfortunately had to pull from the market as it 
did not perform properly under all conditions. It is long term goal 
to reintroduce this product as the issues surrounding it are not 
trivial ones.

Prime first breaks the chlorine-ammonia bond _by binding to the 
ammonia first_ (thus no free ammonia is released) and then removing 
the chlorine and reducing it to chloride.

The price will probably be just little higher (because our cost is 
higher), but other than that (and the color of course) the quality is 
the same (with respect to the iron content and size and appearance).
