Need to buy online!

Hey i live in Canada and i cant seem to find a website that ships to Canada so i was wondering if there are any Canadians that know a good website that ships quality products (plants btw)

All answers appreciated!

Thanks!

I've not come across plant specific Canadian dealers, only fish. But some stores will do mail service, and there is one in Vancouver that ships plants (and fish), here's the website. Vancouver Aquariums, tropical fish and plants for sale
I know April personally, she's very reliable and her stock is good. Plants like fish vary from season to season of course, you can email her to see what's in at present, though if it is very cold where you are you might be better waiting for warmer weather.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Man if you needed US Links I could bomb you right now.....but Canada.......can you look on Ebay? Do you have craigslist there? Aquabid.com does do Canada sometimes (you'll see the lil flag next to the post)

Ya and my LPS sells their plants WAY over prices (7.50$ each) and they look just awful and have about 4-6 different plants at a time!

Check online that's all I can think off. Since I just restarted all my tanks in Nov after the big move, I can't even say mine are big enough where I'll get rid of stuff (which I sure will half year from now).
