shoot... I was just in SC yesterday to drop off my girlfriend. I live in San Jose and I have some moss and some stems if you want. Theres also neptune aquatics by my house. They have an awesome selection of plants and livestock.
Thanks for the thought Jonny. Another member also mentioned Neptune Aquatics. Milpitas isn't close but if I combine my plant/fauna needs I can manage a trip out there.
I'm just used to having a solid LFS when I lived in So Cal. Santa Cruz just isn't big enough.
