Lol nice. I usually get my LECA from a local plant and garden store. So they have TONS of it and know it's for plants and such. So it's not as awkward.
HA! Oh I'm very familiar with that look. People come into the store and ask, "You... You sell... Grow lights & hydroton...? The cops don't say anything?" I had one guy come in and ask about some cactus plant that gets you high... Like I would know.Being new to the hobby a few months back.. I walk into lowes looking my usual Reefer/Dart frog nerd type hobby self. I ask them about the clay pellets use for drainage. At the time, I didnt know their original use. I had a bunch of soil, moss, etc in my hands. The lowes go goes "ohh, for hydroponics" and gives me the "look". Anyone else get the "hey your a herb grower" look and slight chuckle when you asked for LECA?
Just a funny storry. Bored at work today.
The $500 electric bill would be the dead give away. Yup, you've got to be on a list somewhere. Sure you have fish. For some reason this tickled the dickens out of me.Yea, couple large LECA purchases with the all the metal halide lights i had above the salt water tanks. ($500/month in electricity). Sure I am on some list somewhere.
