If not, you can just pick the plants yourself using this site, and pay about $1 per bunch, most rooted plants are $2-$3, and shipping is usually $10.


Looks like they aoffer a lot for a good price but most of the tiems the pic's do not seem to work.. That worries me a little....

the prices are great, but it's a mom&pop shop. They run the whole store out of the garage.

Personally, I prefer good service, great prices, and healthy plants to a flashy web site. (If I didn't, I'd shop at thatpetplace)

Use google and this site. It's what I do.

I think their Biotope design service is a good deal, and it has nothing to do with the fact I've done consulting and designed a few of them for them...

Came home with new plants!

Ok so on my roadtrip to get RO water for my tank I came home with some more live plants.

I have now removed all the fake ones I once had.

I came home with...

2 Large (very large) hornwort
2 Cabomba
2 Water wistera
3 Moneywort.
Exsisting plants were
Anarchis
Java fern
Anubias

I have left some of the hornwort floating as it was so large I cut off peices and let it float. The rest of the stuff I buried in the sand.

Any feedback would be great as I am new to this ;)
