Please check the shipping address listed in your paypal transaction as you check out! If that address is wrong contact me ASAP since I pack and ship orders quickly and I do it based on the address paypal gives me. I prefer you have a confirmed paypal address since unconfirmed addresses mean I need to confirm the shipping address with you (this takes time and can delay shipping.) If you get an e-mail from me with a subject like Re: Payment received from your e-mail@your it is me trying to confirm something about your order before I can ship, please open it and respond if you want your order shipped asap. I do not earn money on the shipping. The paypal calculator is not very flexible so if it over charges you for shipping, I will refund the difference. There is a place on paypal where you can add instructions about shipping (for instance if the shipping address is a business address according to UPS/Fed Ex it might allow me to save you money on shipping for certain products if I know about it, otherwise I have to assume residential shipping. If you add your phone number there I can use your phone number if I ship via Fed Ex for certain products and they can call you if there is an issue with delivery.) If Paypal doesn't charge you for shipping, it is probably because you are in another country or someplace I don't normally ship to, I will be contacting you about it since I will need to find out the shipping costs to your location and send you an invoice for the shipping or refund your order if I can not ship to you or if you don't want to pay the shipping. I normally Sell in the USA but have occasionally shipped packages internationally. Plants and Fish I only sell in Florida at this time and I am not set up to ship fish yet.

Return and Refund Policy

I try very hard to quickly answer questions about products before the sale. If you are uncertain about a product please ask, I want to make sure that what you buy is what you need and what will actually work for you. If you buy a product and change your mind about it later and want to return it, I will have to charge a re-stocking fee and I can only accept returns on unused items. I can only make refunds for 60 days after the purchase through paypal. I do not refund the shipping or pay return shipping unless the reason for the return is on my end. Please contact me for instructions before returning anything. If I'm not expecting something to come back, I won't know what to do with it if it actually makes it to me. Some packages are shipped direct from the manufacturer and simply mailing something back to them won't get you a refund. If there is a problem with a product, please contact me so we can work something out. Some items are covered by warranty.

AquagrowLite Media



I’m working on a new product here. It is a light weight expanded product. I can get it in bulk in 1/2″ that I can deliver around central Florida.
half inch AquagrowLite

half inch AquagrowLite

Please contact me for a quote on pricing/delivery, I will need to know the delivery location. I should be able to deliver up to 6 tons. You will need to have a place I can pull the trailer in and dump it without getting stuck.

We have washed tons and tons of media and the other half who washed the test truck load of the new product says he would choose for us to get the light weight media instead of more river rock the next time we get media.

    I live in Sunrise,FL. (Ft. Lauderdale area)
    I would need the cost of 1500 liters of this media.
    I understand this is expanded shale.
    Thank you

  • Christian Gomez


    I live in Valrico, Fl(Tampa area)
    how much would 450 liters of this media would cost.
    also do you have other sizes, like 3/4 inch.

    Thank You

      At the moment I’m only selling this media by the ton (or 1/2 ton) and you would have to pick it up yourself. I currently only have access to 1/2″ in the Tampa area. You would have to go to Miami to get 3/4″

      The Rail charges adjust each month on the media but for right now (April) I can still make arrangements for you to pick up a ton of the 1/2″ media for $150 in the Tampa Area. (It requires driving a truck or trailer to the rail yard that is able to have rocks dumped in it by a giant front end loader and that will be able to haul the weight.)

      One Ton of the 1/2″ media will make 1.33 cubic yards.
      1/2 ton would make about .66 cubic yards

      450 liters is .59 cubic yards.

      So, I would suggest that 1/2 a ton of the 1/2″ media would be appropriate for your project provided you can get access to a truck to pick up the media during the week at the rail yard (FYI I just had some one up near Jacksonville pick up media using a Home Depot rental truck and a tarp.)

      So For April, I can arrange for 1/2 a ton from the Tampa Yard for $75.50 Plus Tax (I charge 7% tax since I am in Lake county and I don’t necessarily know what county you are in.)

      If you wish to get the media, please use my contact form to e-mail me. I will need your name, address, phone number, and the e-mail address you would like the paypal invoice sent to I also need to know what weekday morning you would most like to pick up the media. I will send a map link showing where the yard (scale and office) is once arrangements are made.

  • Vince Yedynak

    I am requesting a quote on two tons with delivery to Old Town, FL (Dixie County)32680 zip Thank You!

    • TCLynx

      Hello Vince, Unfortunately I no longer have access to the dump trailer to deliver the media and the person with a trailer I have occasionally hired in the past is rarely available this time of year to even give me a quote for a delivery.

      I can arrange for you to pick it up or have some one else pick it up at the rail yard (requires a truck or trailer that can have bulk rock dumped into it) but I’m sorry that I don’t currently have a good way to get you a quick quote on delivery. The Closest rail yards to you that carry the light weight media are either in Ocala or Gainsville.

    I am in Jacksonville, Fl and would like to know where I can get some expanded shale at a good price. I am looking to build a large aquaponic system and will need approximately 38 cubic yards for my final project. For now, I need a smaller portion about 1 cubic yard for a test system I am setting up.

    Thank you.

    • TCLynx

      For the test system, Do you have access to a truck that you can have rocks dumped into the bed and haul one ton? If so I can easily make arrangements for you to pick up your own Expanded Slate media from a Terminal Yard Near Jacksonville. If you can find a hauler (dump truck) for the larger order I can help with arrangements for that too.

      I doubt you want any of the bagged media shipped on a pallet for such a large system if there is any way you can manage to deal with bulk loose media to be delivered.

  • rob leduc

    Iminterested, I’m looking to fill an Aquaponics media bed. I live in spring Hill FL.

    • TCLynx

      How big is the Media bed? If you want truely bulk media and have access to a truck that can haul a ton (and you are willing to let a giant front end loader dump the media into the truck.) Then I can make arrangements for you to pick up an expanded slate product at a local rail yard (I would have to do a search to see if there are any close to you but I have made arrangements at the Ocala and Debary yards regularly.)
      If you don’t need that much media (one ton is about 1.3 cubic yards or 35 cubic feet.)
      I do have some bagged expanded clay here at the farm.
