Hey Guys,

I was looking to order some Optimal Fish Food from Esshup with Hossier Pond Pros and wanted to see if anybody else here in the Dallas area wanted to split a pallet or get a few bags? You save a good bit of money by ordering a pallet or a half pallet. I don't need more than 10 bags and the pallets come in either 24 or 48 bags.

My shop is in Grand Prairie and it could be picked up there our I can meet you in the middle somewhere if it is not to far out of the way.

Let me know if you are interested and we can figure something out. If you only need a few bags that should be ok if we get several people that want some.

I can use a couple of bags. I just bought 4 and had them shipped in.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

I would buy 2 or 3 if that would help. How close are you to 360 N & 183 W end or I-20 and 360 South?

I live in East Tx so would come in HWY 80 or I_20, from the East.

This would be my 1st try and I am Assuming it will be formulated and sized for CNBG, Right?

Thanks much for the offer.

If anyone else from the Longview /Tyler area wants some I will go get it and bring it back for you.

I'm right by 360 and 30. I'll put you down for a few bags and let you know when we are ready to order. Thanks.

Thanks Chris. I have been using Aquamax. It has changed, although I was told by a sales rep it was just a different factory and is the same product with different sourcing on some of the ingredients that makes it seem to be different. I am not unhappy with Aquamax, but am ready to try other Hi Quality products so I will have multiple sources.

Really appreciate asking and look forward to reviewing the product. The fish will tell the story.

MPC, I'd be willing to drive to Longview to pick up 3 bags. My pond isn't far from there. I've already ordered some Optimal directly but could use some more if it would help round out the buy.

Thanks anthropic. I think we have about 20 bags spoken for. Should have everything figured out in the next day or so.

Cost per bag is $41.34.

Speaking of buying Optimal, is anyone familiar with the website Optimal Fish Food dot com. I ordered a bag over 2 weeks ago and have yet to receive anything. I did get an email confirming my order but nothing has been delivered. I went back to the site, but theres no phone # listed there. I found two emails and sent inquiry last week and have had no response. Starting to wonder if this is a real site or if I've been had. Thought I'd ask here before escalating the issue through PayPal. Has anyone done business with them?

I don't know how the food is handled on their (Optimal's) website. Due to the slower season, here orders are shipped once a week via FedEx. Orders in by Monday morning are usually picked up by FedEx on Wed. When the orders pick up FedEx will be stopping by more than once a week.

I ordered off the HoosierPonds.com site and got the bags in about 4 days.

Brian,

I probably drive a few miles from your place on the way to mine. I'll put you down for a bag.

We should have a half pallet spoken for as of right now. When I get a chance today I'll message everybody and see how they'd like to pay.

I ordered 2 bags from Optimal last Tuesday and got it today. I ordered before I saw this thread or I would've been in on it! I was dry!

Hi Chris, I would would like to up my total number of bags to nine, if possible. I will be picking up some extra for another PB'er. If not then the three will be fine. Thanks again, mpc.

Bump.

Anybody else want some food that is in North Texas? Probably have 8-10 bags spoken for already so we only need 14 more bags to get a half pallet worth.

That should put us up to 14. Just need 10 more bags to be spoken for and we can place an order for a half pallet.
