Socal Aquatic Shops thats sell Moss

Hello......looking for aquatic shops in long beach area or nearby that sells any type of moss for shrimp tank and maybe marimo balls. Tried buying online from international vendor but package got intercepted by customs, was a lot cheaper then some other online option I found especially the shipping cost. So now I guess I just rather go to an actual shop for it. Thanks

I just bought some java moss at aquarium co. in culver city.
I bet neptunes reef in torrance would have some, but I haven't been there in years. There are a bunch of aquarium stores in long beach and torrance listed on yelp that you could try.

Marimo Balls can be purchased at just about any Petsmart.

For other types of moss, if you don't mind the drive, try New Wave in Orange. They have Fissidens, XMas moss, subwassertang, and riccia.

I don't think Tong's or 405 stock moss that often. Neptune's Reef I think carries Java Moss and Willow Moss. Its been a long time since I've been there though, but its got one of the better plant selections that's sorta close to Long Beach.

The for sale forum on SCAPE might be another option.
