    Sooner or later I will be ready to order plants for my new 65g. At the rate this project is going probably later.
    I work at the only LFS ( LPS actually ) that I would ever buy plants from ( Petco would be the alt. ) but for the prices I don't see what we do stock in the narrow variety worth it. So the bulk of the plants will be ordered online. This site seems to have a good selection with good deals; Aquarium Plants .
    Has anyone dealt with them? Are they any good?
    Dose anyone have any other recommendations?

    Thanks
    Paul

    I have purchased plants from AquariumPlants.com several times, and have been happy with what I recieved. The quantity and quality of the plants were excellent. Much better than anything I've seen in a local store.

    It is, however, an expensive way to go (shipping!).

    Just checked and the second day air is $14.77. Not too bad, imo.

    I used them and thought they were fine. Not sure that I would go second day air though.

    These days, for specific harder to find plants, hobbyist on line are the best bet.
    For general things, most vendors are fairly good

    I'm thinking it is too slow. I am close to to aquariumplants, which is in south dakota, and i use next day. I have ordered from them several times and have been very happy. Just wish I could grow the plants as large as they do, still learning however.

    I've ordered a few times from different places. Mainly stem plants I wanted to try. For the most part they always come really rough to the point that I'm lucky if I can save enough to grow out. I think they haven't yet recovered from the shipping from the sellers supplier. I have a couple tanks I can keep them in at my shop and that's a good thing. Just got a few in the mail today and there was enough duck weed in them to choke the goose. lol
