Any sources for ROX carbon besides shipping from BRS?

In the past I've used a carbon from Eli/caco3reef.

I bought Vertex rox 0.8 carbon at Wai's.

Thanks brotherd! I picked some up from Wai's. For anyone else, here is what I found for ROX 0.8 with shipping+exchange:

- 1L (420g) bag: $30 (Wai's)
- 1L (420g) bag: $35 (J&L)
- 1.5lbs (680g): $75 (Bulk Reef Supply)
- TimT from OceanFresh has in bulk and was willing to sell 500g, but didn't get a price

Some alternatives:

- Eli/FijiReefRock has bulk carbon $12/lbs
- Seachem Matrix 1L bag: $40 (Amazon.ca)
- Marineland Black Diamond (1100g): $35 (Amazon.ca)

ROX 0.8 is made by Norit. BRS, Vertex and OceanFresh are reselling/rebranding.

Thanks for the homework! I was about to look into this myself. :-)
