In addition, her plants were covered with those slimy gelatinous snail beds which I thought I got rid of but one of my tanks wound up with all those nasty snails.

    I went to e-bay and spent about $56 and got 6 or 7 times more plants. I basically spent twice the money but I got SOOO much more and no snail issues and the plant quality was high end and the plants were in great shape. The ebay seller has her own site and it's called:
    Just had my first experience with yesterday. Bought some hornwort from them through aquabid. It had a few brown spots here and there, but there was plenty of plant for what I paid for and that more than made up for it. Plus, from what I hear, hornwort grows so easy and fast that it shouldn't matter. I did leave it in the bag a whole day after it arrived too, so I don't know if that had anything to do with it; it was very well packaged though.

    You also get a coupon code you can use on the site for 10% off your purchase (not shipping of course) after buying from them once, and from what I can tell you can keep using it too.

    Aquabid has plenty of good people and deals, just make sure you look at reputations and pictures and the like before buying. I've used it twice now and was highly satisfied both times so far.

    Forgot about that one. I just bought some Frogbit from a seller there. He advertised it as 30+ plants and I easily got 40+ and they looked nice and healthy too. Some of them were quite large.

    Just wanted to say that I bought 20 plants (10 Rosette Swords, 10 Red Melon Swords) from last week and they were great looking plants. Solid, healthy, great root system on each plant, and Customer Service was top notch...I was very pleased and felt the price with shipping was very reasonable.

    IDK if anyone will really see this who could use it, but I went to Tricker's in Independence, Ohio, yesterday, and it was WONDERFUL. They do mainly water lilies and other pond stuff, but they had lots of aquatic plants, for very cheap. I got a huge apongeton with big ruffled leaves, several jungle vals, a huge bunch of red root floater (they call it red flax), and a large water lettuce for 15.00USD. For those of us here in Ohio, it's great to have a place like this - great plants, and you don't have to pay for shipping or risk shipping in cold weather.

    Again, great for us in NE Ohio.

    The only supplier that I have personal experience with is His prices and shipping are reasonable. So far he has sent me quality plants. The only con is that he only ships on Wednesdays. Your order must be in by Sunday's at 9:00pm. He ships on Wed for a Fri delivery. I don't mind the wait because they always arrive on time and in good condition.
    Don't forget about Triton, too. I have not had the chance to purchase from him yet, but others have with good results.
