welcome rebecca! most local fish store dont carry nice healthy plants and when they do sometimes its a lil expensive. your best place to find nice healthy plants is from the swap n shop forum on here. you can pretty much find any plants you want and you know its going to be nice and healthy. shipping only runs about $6 so if you buy a lot its a great deal you save on shipping and most of the people here are kind and include extra's. im in the LA area so i dont know any fish stores in riverside..but good luck! and you will enjoy it here!
