    I am in Eau Claire and it seems impossible right now to get a 2 month reagent supply for a trident. If anyone is is sitting on a stock pile of them I would love to purchase a 2 month batch from you.

    Have you checked local stores? If you can’t find one soon I can reach out to some contacts and have one shipped to you

    Yes I have checked everywhere I can online and my only LFS is new wave. I live in Eau Claire and we dont have anyone here other than petco petsmart and tropic waters and none of them carry anything from Neptune. Terrance mentioned on the FB group some places should have some hopefully tomorrow. People have been hoarding it since the Trident launch and now even more so. Bothers me when people do that to make a buck and in times like this it bothers me even more. Worse case I suppose I shut it down and go back to manually dosing testing etc. I appreciate your response! It means a ton just responding.

    I don't understand the hoarding it, it has a shelf life like any other test kit.

    Likely hoarding it for resale at a profit once it goes scarce

    Main reason I don’t let Trident auto dose for me. Dialed everything in with my own settings. Rock solid and could shut down my trident and nothing would change.

    Not really a good reason not to. You still use your dialled in setting for controlled dosing. It just helps smooth out the day to day variances in usage. I could shut mine down today and and all that would happen is I would go back to my dialed in dose and I would have to test manually again to keep it dialed in.

    I just bought a 6-month supply when they had them in stock at BRS. If you want one box I'd sell you one for the list price but you'd have to drive out to Apple Valley to get it.

    I have asbergers so I cant tell if I am being shamed and belittled because I use trident to dose or not. Ben thank you I am hoping BRS gets some in the next few days otherwise I will take you up on that. I would rather ship though with the covid 19 and all. of course I would pay and could even have fed ex or the like pick up from your house.

    Shamed and belittled? Not even close, not sure how you got that from my comment. I was just offering up info on how i do things. Fairly sure I’am in the minority as most people Auto dose with Trident. I have already had two units fail on me so I don’t trust them much. I will be switching to KH Director and Ion Director once my pre-order arrives.

    Again asbergers. I have had two fail on me as well. if Neptune didnt have killer CS I would have bailed. Jen stepped up both times from New Wave to help as well. She is great.

    OK, shoot me a note if you end up needing it. If you want to arrange a FedEx pickup that would work. I'm sure I can find a shipping box around here somewhere.

    Still hoping I can get it on my own. Some jerk on FB was boasting about the 15 units he just bought for profiteering. Man ethical standards in society have gone so far down. I am glad I have semi local fellow hobbyists to help if needed.!
