Dan :

Please don't think I am being overly curious....but what in God's name
do you want 900 lbs. of red flint gravel for ? You
must have either an enormous tank or
many smaller ones. You mentioned that there was a 50.00 minimum
a bit confused. Was that 50.00 for the 900 lbs of gravel which leaves
for the shipping cost or what. I'm a bit
short on comprehension here.

That seems to be a lot of money for a substrate that is not designed for
"a plant
tank with fish as an extra". I can not truly say how attractive red
flint gravel is but
I could find other areas to put 175.00 to
use other than gravel. Again please do not misunderstand....I believe in
a "natural"
setting in all but my killie breeding tanks.
This includes driftwood,rocks and lots and lots of varied plants.
However this is only my personal opinion and YMMV.

I wish you the best of luck on what ever
you decide. Please let us know how everything turns out and stay well.
