    I called today for calcium pellets but apparently the largest supplier is out. May be available in December - could not get a price - place an order - or get a guarantee getting the material. Just try us again in December. Your plug makes it seem like you guys have it available- what gives??? What is the point of calling you???

    I am sorry we couldn't help you, but that is a great price on Calcium Pellets... so great it sounds like a Blend more the Calcium and am curious about the Brand of Calcium Pellets you are getting. Not sure who your supplier is but buy everything you can at that price, while you can.

    My supplier for calcium pellets under $20? How about home depot? $20 a bag for a blend? Try $8-$9 at full retail. I'm filling up my truck and heading east.

    No blend - highest price I got was 11.25 p bag - they were 40# bags but still way lower than yours. I think it's $18 a bag at lowes/hd. Very popular brand not dusty like peladow either but if pela is all there is then so b it
