    APS is short for Aquatic Plant Soil, a brand-name by Schultz. It's a fine gravel made from fired clay. Also known by the brand name Turface, which is much cheaper, even though it's by the same manufacturer. Ceramic chips is a more generic term for it.
    Awesome discoveries Butch! I really want to try APS/Hydroton once I get my Ceph cutting rolling... I'm determined to replicate mobile's little setup. The Miracle Gro is kind of surprising, but I guess it makes sense, considering they are only seasonally carnivorous according to some folks.
    Just got off the phone with Contractor Lighting and they're sending me THREE replacement ballasts (one for the dead one, two for the others that are slow-starting) and an entire case of replacement tubes, because just six out of the case would be too fragile in the mail. Woohoo!
