I am wanting to add some more live plants to my 55 gallon aquarium, but the pet stores I have around me dont carry a whole lot, and the ones they do, they charge a rediculous price. Is there a web site or something I can order live plants from?! Thank you!

Fellow hobbyists are the best for getting live plants. Check around on Classifieds. Shipping is usually just $7 and the plants are generally cheap and better quality then stores. Hardy plants are Anubias, Java fern, Java Moss, Sword plants, and some crypts can be but those can be picky sometimes. Floating plants are a good choice as well like Water Sprite, duckweed (even it spreads like a wild fire!), if you don't have much water movement on the surface Frogbit and dwarf water lettuce can do well.

That's completely insane! Like seriously! I'v had fish shipped from the west coast to the east coast overnight and it only cost me half of that. Plants are almost always fine with priority shipping. Only had a few kinds that arrived as mush and those were more delicate stems.
