I am a fellow Seattle area person who is looking for the same thing. What LFS places have you tried?

I've seen them at several places on the internet, but like you $14 is a bit hard to swallow.

I know the Puget Sound area has a aquatic club that holds plant auctions every month, but I have not attended to say what they sell.

I've tried "the fish store" on roosevelt, blue sierra in issaquah- and called a few others with no luck.-- what aquatic club and how do you find about it or the sale? Could be the way to go-

Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (I had to google it I didn't remember the name).

The have auctions it seems monthly. I have never attended. If anybody has I would love to hear about the experience.

If you can come up to Vancouver I'll give you a pail of both species of pygmy chain sword.:lol:

I will no longer send plants to the USA because of the customs and other delays at the border; they frequently don't make it alive.

The Wet Spot fish store in Portland, Oregon may have or be able to get this plant.

I would almost take you up on that offer just to see those tanks live.

I have to renew my passport now that I think about it.

Also the 200 mile one way drive :)

Thank you for a kind offer.

My LFS usually has some stocked. If you would like I could buy some and ship it to you. All you'd have to pay is the price of the plant and shipping.

sweet offers- both of them ! I think I will try to catch the auction- surely someone in Seattle has a source!

If you wait till it gets warm I can mail some (if mine takes off, just planted it yesterday). Once its warm a ziplock bag and wet paper towel usually does just fine through the regular snail mail.

Beetlbz-
Thank you for the generous offer and I will tale you up on it!
