Newly Found online Resource. Recommend or No?

Howdy,
Just found Bobs Tropical Plants online. It seems to specialize in Nano fish but has lots of shrimp, snails and of course plants. The prices are cheap. My question, as an online resource, for all of the above, is it a good source? Any other suggestions?
Thanks,
Paul

Can't say anything about their livestock but it's a really good place to buy ferts from. That's where mine came from. They have a good reputation as far as that is concerned.

I've bought nerite snails and some petite anubis as well as drift wood and was very pleased with what I got.

Thanks guys. That is helpful information. I've been getting most of my livestock and stuff from Drs Foster and Smith and I've been pleased. Their variety is somewhat limited with shrimp and moss so I ordered from Arizona gardens. Not so pleased there. I ordered java and Christmas tree moss, about six portions of each. The java moss was almost totally a brown mess with occasional green strands. There was no Christmas tree moss. I sent them an email reporting this and never received a response. Unacceptable. Their snails were fine though.
Does anyone recommend a place for moss and for shrimp? I will be giving Bob an order soon.
Your recommendations will be appreciated
Thanks,
Paul

I recommend checking out the FS section over at The Planted Tank Forum. There are fine folks over there that breed various shrimp and there is always mosses of various type for sale. I have had several transactions there and always a good experience. You may also check For Sale or Trade - Aquatic Plant Central. They have some good deals as well. Not saying this place isn't great...it's just that the FS section is very...well...dead. Rest of the forums here is excellent though.
