Check with Aqua imports in boudler, they get their plant order every other friday (this friday) They had a shipment of glosso with the last one, and can do orders of a plant you want.

Anubias, Petsmart and petco have anubias in the tubed plants. Look carefully at the scientific name, most of the plants in the tubes are terrestrial plants.

I was in Aqua Imports yesterday picking up some Excel. I was somewhat shocked at the poor quality of plants they had. They've had much better in the past. They also had several HUGE Florida Gar in their plant tank. Yikes (from both size and bioload perspectives)!!

They place their plant orders in every 2 weeks, so we are now at the end of that two weeks and are due to recieve new plants tomorrow. During the end of the time period the um. least desirable plants are really the only ones to choose from, and they tend to look ratty.
The Garr were a trade-in / given up fish, like the Giant Gourami they had, they have to put them in one of the two plant tanks, which are the largest fresh water tanks they have in the store. Hopefully like the Giant Gourami, someone will come in and adopt them.
